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."

I never said it was dead, or that it hasn't been greatly influential. One could argue that DragonFly's goals might not be so ambitious if not for Plan9. Plan9 continues to be developed as an open source project by current and former members of Bell Labs and MIT research teams, and there are direct descendants such as PlanB.
