TLDR: 9front is a fork of Plan 9.

Plan 9 was probably the finest operating system in the world.

Some say it was BeOS. Others say it was MS-DOS. Yet others, Oberon. Operating systems differ widely, and so do opinions. In my opinion, each and every one of them was a product of love, each served the purpose it was designed for, and each deserves to live forever - if only in our hearts (and VMs).

A fork in the finest operating system in the world? Is there discord in paradise?

Maybe you could find out from the website, but I gave up.

You could, like in the first paragraph of the link.

Now we can.

Still the finest.
