I never really dove too deep into Plan 9, but it has always fascinated me. I think it's time to learn more - and I suggest you do so too. It's weekend, after all, right?

Me, too, I'm puzzled with the license decission. After all, Berkely came up with BSD license and now they push for GPL? It's both stupid and wrong.

BSD, MIT, Apache would have been much more wise decissions.
