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."

I certainly hope it is. Of the systems out there, plan9 seems to currently be the theoretically best one, fixing the mistakes unix made. Sadly I've never played with it, perhaps the 9front guys will try to push for more exposure.
