OSNews, Generic OSes "Plan 9 has been forked to start a development out of the Bell Labs (or whatever they are called these days...). This true community-approach allows further development of Plan 9, even if the shrinking resources at Bell-Labs for Plan 9 are vanishing. The homepage and the code can be both found at Google code. You can boot 9front from the regulary built live cd or build the binaries in your existing Plan 9 installation. Installation instructions and further information can be obtained at the 9front wiki."

Paint it white and call it a chicken. The BSD community and developers were still around nearly 15 years before Linux regardless of the law suit that lead to the serveral deriviatives we see today and the same community and developers went on to the derivatives. I stand by what I said: Linux is like "the other stuff", not the other way around. Linux is not some super original idea that has innovated the computing industry in any other way short of it's unique licensing which is what has really held its community together this long.
