Hello everyone, 

I'm really looking forward to getting to grips with Plan 9 in depth, but would have a question in advance.

Since I want to use Plan 9 on an amd64 system, my understanding is that I am left with two options: Plan 9 legacy and 9front. I want to use Plan 9 on bare metal, so Plan9port would only be a stopgap.

To be able to decide on an option, I would like to understand the differences. Do the two systems differ in their stated goals, or is 9front's development merely historical (e.g. for licensing reasons)?

Many thanks in advance!
