Speaking of which, what is PLAN 9 (other than the original Unix guys'
next unix.)  Where can I get more info about it?  Why does noone
on this group talk about getting a Plan 9 port to the 3b1 instead
of a Mach port or minix port or whatever.

Would like any info about Plan 9.  Also, what machines are now running
it and who sells them.
