Box     Plan 9 is a lean, highly-portable operating system designed for a networked world. It runs on various hardware platforms and is highly suited to building large distributed systems. It has been run on systems ranging from small embedded devices to supercomputers.

A typical Plan 9 installation would comprise one or more file servers, some CPU servers and a large number of terminals (user workstations).

The small size and straightforward structure of (most of) its source code, and low system management overhead, makes it particularly suitable for research and teaching applications.

For an overview and further information about Plan 9, see its web site.

Vita Nuova assists the further development of Plan 9, sells printed manual sets, and can provide courses on its implementation and use.
