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?

I couldn't agree more. Maybe the GPL license will get some people interested that weren't previously, but I guess that will be marginal.

Of course this topic came up on the 9fans list, but it doesn't look like much came of it, other than the conversation straying here and there to how much they dislike GNOME and GTK+, with a few voices of reason trying to keep the conversation on topic:
