OSNews, Generic OSes A new version of Plan 9 has been released. "Major changes were made to /sys/src/fs, removing some dead code. Some major bugs were fixed. New features were added and the memory limit was increased." More information can be found in the mailing list message. For those that don't know: "Plan 9 was born in the same lab where Unix began. Underneath, though, lies a new kind of system, organized around communication and naming rather than files and processes. In Plan 9, distributed computing is a central premise, not an evolutionary add-on."

Indeed! Grid Computing on steroids. :-p
I use PLAN 9 at home to take care of my *NIX machines, of course having 9vfs in the linux kernel helps a helluva lot. ;)
