Breaking from Plan 9

After the least diplomatic person I know told me it might be good to be a little more diplomatic here, I’m removing my old post.

The gist? I don’t work on Plan 9 anymore because, despite some really neat technology, the community (outside of a few people) is decidedly unpleasant. I said a lot more before, but that suffices.

If I work on Plan 9 code in the future, it will not be called Plan 9 and it will not be discussed on 9fans.

I’m leaving the comment because I am, in fact, an asshole, and because “community” in the sarcasti-quotes is pretty much my assessment of it too.
