There is already a 9vx is already included in tiny core, so that was
not much to play with :)

I also think that the usage cases of tinycore/9vx and a
plan9port-based "normal" distro are different, but I might be wrong.

As I said at first, though. The whole thing is mostly for fun. It
seems like a system can run quite OK even when the plan9port bin
directory is first in the PATH...
At the moment I am basically just trying to figure out how to make the
plan9port parts more deeply embedded into the system and how to best
leverage plan9port stuff as defaults.

in response to a previous question: yes it is 10.04 and I have
absolutely no idea how the plymoth works, which probably is one of my

One reason I looked at debian-based systems at first was that they
allegedly had gotten rid of Bash-isms in their init scripts (in
contrast to Arch), but since the ISO refused to boot after I removed
Bash, I am sort of sceptical about that...

Personally, I definitely look forward to playing with whenever
it is ready. A really cool project!
