I think it is uninteresting: one can always install plan9port in a
meager installation of openbsd, freebsd or linux.

More interesting is to have the original plan9 and perhaps a virtual
machine on it to run one of the above OS and their software.

Unfortunately I am having problems installing plan9. It seems to be
very selective on the hardware.

i had been trying to work with a collaborator to develop a complete,

while initially being quite gung-ho about linux, an accidental discovery
and ensuing experiements show the freebsd environment to be a lot more
performant and responsive, almost as much as netbsd for something like a
plan9port system.

wish to ask the community that if such a system were to be successfully
developed and distributed with source and free of cost, would it be
welcomed or most would not even bother to look at?

also, if there's enough interest, would there be someone out here
capable enough to support netbsd-amd64?
