Wonderful Operating System
Plan 9, a network operating system, that we should all learn from. It exploits the true advantages of communication. Using remote hardware or even remote Internet connections has never been simplier.

One protocol for all everything is the way to go. In Linux you have many individual protocols to be able to access individual things over a network. Like for graphics you have the X Windows protocol. But what about sound? Now you need another protocol for sound! This starts getting complex and insane.

Using Plan 9 makes you appreciate organization. It puts the system in operating system.

It is approved by OSI, FSF and Debian Free Software Guidelines. The license now grants and forces more freedom than GNU GPL which is great.

Before anyone corrects me, the question may have become obsolete since OSI has finally started to do something about the license issue. See http://plan9.bell-labs.com/hidden/osi-diff.html.
