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."

Aww crap, they ditched Glenda: https://code.google.com/p/plan9front/wiki/Mascot

But in all seriousness; why would they choose a copyrighted character as there new mascot ? Isn't that just begging for legal trouble ?

I am asking myself the same question. I thought Glenda was pretty epic and lovable mascot. Instead of this generic anime stuff.

Maybe Glenda as getting old but at least it had some connection to, you know, Plan 9 and also wasn't some lame-ass Anime character.
