Is it a compatibility layer between P9 and Linux? Or something else [stand alone OS?]
Nice! Any apps in there that could be usefull for average panda user?
I really don't know. The UI is radically different than what we know. In a user space is it reasonable. As a native port to Pandora, i think it will be useless.
Nothing ^^. It's just a better UNIX, but it lacks many software, like a web browser :^).
Nope, it's not an experiment, it's the successor of UNIX, made by the creators of UNIX.It was another OS experiment with lots of neat ideas, but never went anywhere; it was never usable from a user perspective IMHO, since its got a small library and a very limited hardware support. (ie: It was designed for "X" set of components, and works on those; anythign else.. forget it Like Hurd -- lots of rgeat ideas, but still very small userbase.
Installed P9 a million years ago; it ate the disk -- I told it to use an enmpty partition, and it thought it woudl be cool to at the same time, destroy everything on the other partitions. It made me angry
