Maybe the artwork can be released?

Not bad, not bad... now what aren't you willing to admit to? :)  haha


I also have two different copies of the 3rd Edition plan9.9gz, one from 2000 
and one from 2001, plus a handful of patch 9gz files, and one floppy image that 
I can't get to boot.  I have printed 3rd Edition manuals but Charles was out of 
boxed sets by the time I tried to make a purchase.


I'm happy to share all the 3rd Edition stuff I have, but I was really hoping 
that a different variation of the 3rd Edition boot floppy would shake out from 
this.  However, thanks for looking!


Also, what's on your 3rd Edition CD?  Is it bootable, or is it just the 
plan9.9gz burned onto a disc?

Thanks much!

ok, i spike too soon

what i have (and am willing to admit to :-):

ed 2 cd and floppy set
ed 3 cd, box and manuals - i don’t believe there was a 3rd floppy, perhaps 
Charles can confirm?

there was a demo floppy for the 1st and 2nd edition. i had the demo for the 1st 
but can no longer find it.

SL has the 2nd ed demo floppy available on his site:
http://plan9.stanleylieber.com/1995/
1995 - plan9.stanleylieber.com<http://plan9.stanleylieber.com/1995/>
plan9.stanleylieber.com
1995. A few years ago I stumbled across this Plan 9 press kit from 1995 on 
eBay. p95.flp - floppy disk image. pcdist.tgz - four disk floppy set from Plan 
9 website ...



he also had the 2nd ed floppy images.
