They say it on their FAQ. Even though Plan 9 isn't being developed anymore, doesn't the fork cause worry that one day they become too different, especially since the community is rather centered around Plan 9 rather than 9front? Or is the community actively trying to make 9front be accepted as the official continuation of Plan 9? > > I'm afraid you got it wrong. Community is mostly centered around > 9front.

The Raspberry Pi port of Plan 9 would appear to be alive and well and likewise I hear of porting to more recent architectures, which is similarly work being done outside of 9front. ------------------------------------------ 9fans: 9fans Permalink: https://9fans.topicbox.com/groups/9fans/T395156d4f2b00cde-M2d433fa6c4359ececaad1aa3 Delivery options: https://9fans.topicbox.com/groups/9fans/subscription
