    Anything keeping the 9front guys from contributing back their work?

    p.s. also saw a few GUI suggestions on the GSOC list... Might want to hold off on that until golang 1.18 is out and people start working on a gui toolkit.

    p.p.s. 9front license was rebased mit: http://code.9front.org/hg/plan9front/rev/87d8e72ffb5c

      "ho knows, perhaps Plan 9 will become a part of the emerging distributed cloud infrastructure that will underpin the coming industrial revolution?
      I think that should be "Who"

      And now it is simply left for me to smash the metaphorical magnum of champagne as Plan 9 sets sail on the next leg of her journey, to parts unknown."
      Or maybe Plan 9 is a siren.

          If other old projects could "take the pledge" sharing code to be released under a public license say 15-20 years -- that'd be awesome.

          This is good news but I can't imagine how it fits into the current technosphere in a useful way.

            It doesn't. Like Multics and GWBasic it has historical value and it's good to preserve it as such, but it doesn't have any actual use.

              Plan 9 was a teamwork between American and German developers, the Americans asked:
              - Do we have a plan?
              - Nein
              - Ok, Plan 9, what is it?
              - ...
