Will keep posting these as long as it takes for some kind of actual momentum to form behind this OS

Summary for new people: Plan 9 is the evolution of the UNIX operating system and should have been what we were using instead of Ganoob Lunix

We took some stuff from Plan 9 to Linux.

>Torvalds: "Well, one of the obvious long-time influences has been the conceptual reliance on straight ASCII as a portable and readable way to show information. This is perhaps most visible in the /proc and /sys filesystems. While legacy Unix also had a /proc thing, it was more of a binary interface, while Linux is more like Plan 9, believing that ASCII interfaces are good.
>"The kernel also internally supports the notion of filesystem “namespaces,” which is another Plan 9-like feature. You can think of it as the ability to do per-process mount maps, where different processes actually can see a different organization of the filesystem. It’s not actually used all that much, since it’s not a feature that people are used to, but it does reflect the common belief among Linux developers that the Plan 9 people had “good taste.”"

now THIS is a meme OS.

>> No.51996939

i'm really tempted to put Plan 9 on the home server I'm building. Aside from the dank maymay, what's the benefit of using it on a single computer and not taking advantage of the whole "networked OS with shared resources" concept?

>> No.51996972

>>51996939
There is no advantage. What do you plan to do with the server?

If you want to use the plan 9 utilities, just get plan9port for GNU/Linux.

>> No.51997015

>>51996939
No advantage, like >>51996972 said, unless you're a hobbyist who genuinely likes to try out new things.

In any case, don't install plan 9 from Bell Labs, install 9front, which is far superior.

why is /g/ full of fun hating faggots?

first people complain about homescreen/desktop/battlestation threads.
then people complain about gnunet/ipfs/plan9 threads. Those are just the most recent trends that happened.

Now, how does plan9/9front run on a Sun ultra 5? It's the only machine I have now without an os.

OK, maybe you are actually an anti-Plan 9 poster, OP, but in case you don't know, here is what will happen:

- Plan 9 will get a new logo.
- Development will halt and the project will eventually die. Potentially with lots of bitching and transfurry side projects involved.

Any exposure would be good for p9 at the moment

It's not like people are going to start switching over from Linux any time soon, even awareness is good

Dear /g/,

Do you want to get in at the ground on a project that has been failing to take off since 1992?

No, what about a community that openly mocks Code of Conducts?

http://9front.org/coc (multiple versions of this, refresh the page)

A community where every release is cryptically memed hard enough that you aren't entirely sure if it's a release or another kind of news.

http://9front.org/releases/

Just try and browse their website. To most people this website would seem like terrible design, completely unable to figure out what's going on. Can you make sense of their website?

http://9front.org/

It all starts here.

Love from,
someone who is not stupid enough to use this meme OS.

9FRONT CODE OF CONDUCT

1. A 9front may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow
a human being to come to harm.

2. A 9front must obey the orders given it by human beings, except
when it conflicts with the first law.

3. A 9front must protect its own existence as long as such protection
does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

9base looks like it is mostly, more basic programs. plan9port is more about the larger tools, like sam and acme. From what I can tell at least, I have used neither extensivley, mostly just p9p for sam and compilers.

Ganoob Lunix ported the good parts out of plan9. Unless you are running a cluster of some sorts (which linux can do just fine) there is literally no reason to use such an obscure OS.

It is easier and faster to install, if it works.
You probably get fewer viruses, and fewer casual attackers can get into your system.
It has a better mascot.
But neither have xorg when you first install.
