    Currently reading through this, and enjoying it. I just thought I’d like to comment on these two lines before I forget:

    Plan 9 does follow the UNIX philosophy (much closer in fact then UNIX itself).

    The acme text editor is arguably the main user application for Plan 9, it doubles as the systems file manager, terminal, mail reader and more.

        I get it, acme isn’t really doing all these things. Arguably, the only thing acme really does is give you an interface for interacting with text, and since everything in Plan 9 is text, it becomes a powerful tool.

        But it’s still a funny juxtaposition to me.
