Just gauging the interest, if I were to create a /#9front tilde would you be interested to join?
If yes, what you expect to be able do on it?

@julienxx mostly i'd want to learn how to use it, probably do some gopher browsing. explore writing, reading, mail, finger.

@julienxx I wonder how much of it rests on a GUI? Perhaps my problem is that the only longer article I’ve read about Plan 9 involved the ACME editor.

@kensanata yes you would need to open a remote graphical connection, this wouldn’t be a traditional ssh/sftp access. That’s how I access it currently and it works quite nicely

@julienxx

Would be nice actually, I have yet to see a good plan9/9front community :)

@joacim

@selea @julienxx @joacim The best non-Bell Labs center of mass I’ve seen, historically, was plan9.jp, but they gave up when some hardware died. I’ve got a (smaller, languishing) one at 9srv.net, but I’ve suspended new account creation until I can get some flakiness issues sorted out. I’ll let 9fans know when it’s back healthy.

@julienxx
drawterm access, the plan9 utilities, that's it really
rio access would be interesting but idk how that would work

@ensa rio access works, I can already connect with 2 users with their rio env of their own. The only question would be how much users can a small instance sustain :)

@julienxx @sigrid I would not personally, but it would be interesting to find a collection of interested people. I would be more interested in a mastodon acme client.

@julienxx I'd join so that I could get to know plan9 better
