From the ‘Is it April 1st already?’ department…
Plan 42 is a new OS by Andy Elvey that treats ‘everything as a file’ and seems to take more than a bit of inspiration from Plan 9.
What makes it (as boyd would have put it) so ‘fascinating’ is that it is implemented in Python and C++ and uses “whefs” (Wandering Horse Embedded File System) as its main storage file system.
Among other things it seems to include:
- A clone of the plumber
- A port of Newsham’s Python 9P library to C++
- A clone of fossil called ‘trilobite’
The currently ‘pre-alpha’ project is released to the public domain.
And given its claims that “it’s all about having fun”, who can criticize it?
