I was gladdened to see mention of the GNU/HURD. Totally new to me was Inferno, not something I would have a personal need for but interesting none the less.


Inferno isn't really well known, but it's basically Plan9.

More like the successor to plan9. Still good to see its name in lights, as it were.
