In the sense that GNU aims to be a similar to UNIX operating system,
but not UNIX, it is almost the same thing than Plan9. But now I was
talking about glibc and the GNU tools, you could read to get the idea, or some info pages.

I cannot understand GNU software. ls or cat source in GNU is scary,
glibc is even worse. The old UNIX utilities or Plan9 ones have a
simplicity which GNU lacks. I don't have anything against the GPL
license, but I prefer less restrictive licenses. And, of course, I
don't like rms.
