    I expected bad news, but R9 actually sounds really exciting, and might get me to fool around with plan 9 ecosystem stuff again for the first time in years.

      As far as I understand it, R9 is not a Plan 9 system…?

        Plan 9 in Rust

        R9 is a reimplementation of the plan9 kernel in Rust. It is not only inspired by but in many ways derived from the original Plan 9 source code.

        Sounds like Plan 9 to me.

          The linked website says:

          an OS strongly inspired by Plan 9

            It’s not the original Plan 9 source code (so it’s technically not the Plan 9), but it’s a Plan 9. It sounds to me that the differences are basically just in flavour.
