No, I will have to try to write one in rc(1).

The scrot is showing the rio window manager and is *not* running an X server, the programs are drawing on the pixel display directly and there are no xft fonts or suchlike, it is more akin to a console session running a framebuffer:

Thanks, yeah i read a little Wiki about Plan 9 and a bit framebuffer seeing your last scrots, It seems really interesting.
For older desktop as mine "Linux framebuffer" is a miracle. mpv app it is an ideal example for speed and practicality.

Cool, some OS info would be great to see :)

Only by using their Linux emulation:

http://fqa.9front.org/fqa8.html#8.7.1

The systems' main intended purpose is for fileservers and the like, especially when operated over a distributed computing network -- the 9front.org website is run entirely on Plan 9/9front servers 8)

drawterm running on OpenBSD, ready to connect to a 9front or Plan 9 cpu server:

Apparently, it is possible to run Quake II under 9front:

I don't, I think it's ugly and dysfunctional now, besides being way too heavily dependent on Red Hat's systemd. Anything that depends on systemd is now *owned* by it and its authors, and that includes the unwitting end user. Sorry for the rant but that's the sad current state of affairs.

Yours looks nice as well, I will be able
to install Xorg, but I need to download the source
and compile my own package, they do not have one
available,...this is going to take some work,
but it will be worth it,...I am sure.
There were packages for all the "tools" one needs
to write and compile most any kind of programs, etc.
The CLI is powerfull and efficient, sufficient as well.

Hi Linadian, how's tricks?

Well, I think it looks very nice and the Google Drive integration in Nautilus works perfectly and is very useful 8)

depends on systemd

Not necessarily, OpenBSD have it working just fine:

Also, it's fine to rant as long as you post some eye candy -- how's your (PCLinuxOS?) desktop looking?

Here's mine:

No, I don't think so.

If you want Unity then install Ubuntu.

I think it can be cobbled together in Arch but I'm not sure if it works properly:

This took some work, but now I have Minix3.4
with Xorg, and some graphics,...display, etc.
Image

Actually, it was not that hard, it turns out that the newest ISO's, do include
Xorg, the one I was using was older, and did not have it. With some help
from "support", suggesting I try a newer image,...it all works now.
As long as I have a Text editor, Image Magick,and a browser I am pretty content.
But also with openssh installed, I can access the other machines, and servers,...
so it is starting to be a complete system,,....fast and effeciant
