I suppose the one thing holding me back from really jumping on the plan9 train with everyone else is that it’s largely a C ecosystem. It’s a lot more mature than Mezzano, however. Or, I could be wrong and flavours like 9front are about as mature as Mezzano.
Thinking about writing C and getting used to the ‘write, compile, debug, edit’ cycle, as opposed to LISP’s magical REPL doesn’t make me really want to spend much time in plan9, but, I always have an open mind, and I do have an install of 9front working!
Netsurf is now on plan9, so that’s a plus for that system, whereas I don’t think there is much hypertext support at all in Mezzanoz apart from some fairly early gopher client code I have been linked to.
I don’t know what my problem is sometimes —- shouldn’t I just be happy with my GUIX?? What is driving me to want to try out exotic operating systems?
I suppose one answer is that I know that a LISP operating system, when indeed fully mature, would be an absolutely stellar human-centric computer experience.
