...and not quite unix.  Let me reffer for to a recent article in Unix
World called (I think) Plan 9 From Outer Space (just like the movie).
Unfortunatelly, I do not have the article handy to give you more details 
'cept it was still in this year' issue.

Reasons are many, and they will be obvious to you after you read the article,
but two should be enough to quote here;  first, it is a multiprocessor/network
OS with servers for files, compute needs, etc.  The other is that it's being
kept under covers, and if I remember right; it's not even yet made available
to academia.
