Now I didn't know that. I admit that all I've ever done is
over stuff about Plan 9 (should it be Plan9 without the space? no pun
intended) and have never even tried installing it on anything. It's
just one of those things that I've filed away as looking interesting
and must take a deeper look at one day. It was the film association
that made me look at it in the first place. I'm a sucker for old 'B'
movies :-) Hey, when I growing up our horror was not stuff like 'SAW'
it was the Hammer Horror, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Fly
(original 3 films) and, of course, 'Plan 9 From Outer Space'.
Procrastinating work, I look stuff up, and see it's actually
/proc that's the real benefit:
Also interesting legacy of Plan9:
& the wonderful wmii Window Manager (close to
being my favourite, atm).

PS Haven't seen that film for ages, but in totally unrelated
viewing news, Due South is now on iPlayer :-)
