One Way Forward

icon Created by Chris Williams //

At the FOSDEM 2024 conference in February of that year, our open-source journalist Liam Proven gave a talk titled: "One way forward: finding a path to what comes after Unix." Here's the precis of that presentation:

"Plan 9 was intended to be Unix, done better. It preemptively replaced a lot of what we now bodge together with virtual machines, containers, and even microkernels, and it did it more simply and cleanly. But it wasn't compatible enough to replace its ancestor. With off-the-shelf existing 21st century tech, we can fix that."

Liam also wrote a series of articles stemming from that talk, which you can find below.
