My summer break in 2014 had a theme of sorts, which was “back to basics”. I wanted to forget everything I could about work and fiddle with more interesting stuff – less abstractions, less wondering, more concrete, down-to-earth stuff.
For some reason I gravitated back towards Plan9/Inferno again. Call it dissatisfaction with present day computing, if you will, but I keep looking for something smaller, faster and more efficient than what we use today – so I ended up setting up plan9ports on a Chromebook and fiddling with it.
Come 2020, I revisited this again, updated a few links and dug around a bit more for a few extra resources.
