    Plan 9 from Bell Labs is a research system developed at Bell Labs starting
    in the late 1980s. Its original designers and authors were Ken Thompson, Rob
    Pike, Dave Presotto, and Phil Winterbottom. They were joined by many others
    as development continued throughout the 1990s to the present.

    Plan  9  is a distributed computing environment assembled from separate
    machines acting as terminals, CPU servers, and file  servers.   A  user
    works at a terminal, running a window system on a raster display. Some
    windows are connected to CPU servers; the intent is that heavy computing
    should be done in those windows but it is also possible to compute on the
    terminal.  A separate file server provides file storage for terminals and
    CPU servers alike.

    By the mid 1980's, the trend in computing was away from large centralized
    time-shared computers towards networks of smaller, personal machines,
    typically UNIX 'workstations'. People had grown weary of overloaded,
    bureaucratic timesharing machines and were eager to move to small,
    self-maintained systems, even if that meant a net loss in computing power.
    As microcomputers became faster, even that loss was recovered, and this
    style of computing remains popular today.
