@neauoire @eel You'll have a decent time with Plan 9 communities provided that you allow yourself and others the opportunity to experience them on your own. You may find free-thinking people on the sticky side of labels such as 'cat-v'', 'grid', '9fans', and so on.
Expect disagreement. Demand learning. You'll be fine.
@neauoire what would you say is the best way to approach plan9? I've been a Linux user for over 15 years, and I remember trying plan9 back in 2008 and it not only didn't click but I felt the learning curve is way to steep. I felt completely alien to the ecosystem. Reminds me a bit of the whole Urbit/Hoon thing in terms of how esoteric it feels.
@neauoire its just a place to share things you've figured out and notes and tips and tricks. plan9 is all about community and you are welcome to join when you are able to.
Gathering a bunch of examples, I want to learn to make little graphical apps.
