Jehanne: Plan 9 with a POSIX layer


This is not entirely un-interesting: Jehanne's sole developer took Plan 9 and added a couple of convenience improvements, like a library to support POSIX. As a proof of concept, the mksh was ported to it. I heard rumors that NetSurf could be ported as well - that would make Jehanne the first "Plan-9-like" operating system with a decent web browser.

I'll definitely keep an eye on it.

I've run plan 9 already, kind of a interesting OS. I'd be interested in trying this one.

Let us know when they release an iso. AFAIKS it's still just source code.

The interesting part is, I discovered this project earlier today, via your plan 9 text editor links in a previous post.

It seems plan9(base) is getting a little more attention recently. I think another project is called HarveyOS(just source so far). But so far the only iso's I could find were plan9(old) and 9front.

Harvey OS is one of the projects used for Jehanne, according to the README.

I tried to use Plan 9 once, but I couldn't get my brain around it, if they can make it more intuitive, I may try it again.

I'm curious what part of plan9 you couldn't "get".

My biggest hurdle was figuring out the WM(rio). It is also hard to figure out what is installed. Luckily I'm decent on a terminal.

rio's documentation is OK, I'd say. Rob Pike usually talks a lot about what he did, waiting for someone to pat him on the back.
