***** README ***** A start has been made on Plan 42 - a small public-domain operating system. The first priority is to get a small, simple kernel to boot. Some P.D. code is available to help with this. After this is done, considerable time will be spent becoming familiar with the code and how it works. The aim is to first get a very good understanding of the basics of booting, kernels and operating systems. At that point, it should be possible to start customising the kernel to become more "Plan 9-like". *** STATUS - 21st Nov 2013 *** I'd summarise the status as "going very slowly but not abandoned". It is *almost certain* that further development will use the PD code from the excellent OS development tutorial series on brokenthorn.com here - http://www.brokenthorn.com/Resources/OSDevIndex.html - mooseman
