BSD and Darwin derivatives Apparently, Matt Dillion has decided to roll his own filesystem for DragonFly. "Here is my initial outline of the filesystem design. It is open for discussion. Please feel to ask questions for anything you do not understand. I do not intend to start coding anything for at least two weeks. There are currently two rough spots in the design. First, how to handle segment overflows in a multi-master environment. Such overflows can occur when the individual masters or slaves have different historical data retention policies. Second, where to store the regeneratable indexes."

It's not Lucent's fault

Actually, Plan 9 was destroyed by Rob Pike. Inferno was his baby, and when AT&T was splitting up he tried hard to make sure that Bell Labs would end up with Lucent rather than the other potential choices. Rob believed that Lucent, being in the teleco business, was the right place to develop Inferno into embedded devices.
