Plan 9 Boot Camp

SDF periodically runs a Plan 9 Boot Camp which is open to anyone with an SDF user account. These Plan 9 Boot Camps are announced on 1), plan9-l, or bboard 2). The Plan 9 Boot Camp events are typically seasonal quarterly occurrences that run for 3 months.

In 2009 SDF moved to running 9xen-pae thanks to work done at Sandia/Los Alamos. Since then plan9front has made significant improvements and SDF moved to using plan9front pc64 exclusively in 2020.

In 2021 SDF announced a supplemental amd64 plan9front server for use with the SDF Plan 9 Boot Camp.
