As of three days ago, my rickety old Dell Latitude is running NetBSD and
Plan9 in dual mode. (Although at heart I'm a FreeBSD guy, I find that the
NetBSD installer also doubles as a nifty partition manager. )

Hi All,

Am an operating system enthusiast & in the future intend to take part
in OS development seriously.Also am always interested in works of Bell
Labs.

I have an old laptop P2 266Mhz with 32 MB RAM & 4 GB HD .I want to
just use it for OS testing & getting programming experience under
different OS'es.Already I have a desktop with WinXp / Open Solaris b66
in dual mode.

I would like to use Minix 3 or Plan 9 in my old laptop ( I dont wanna
try Linux ) & preferably next choice will be freeBSD.Is it possible to
install & use Plan 9 with Minix 3 in dual mode ??? or Plan 9 with Free
BSD in dual ?????Any suggestions Plzz??? Or is it worth i run Plan 9
alone in that laptop??? ( Also am unsure whether Plan 9 will run in
my laptop configuration,But surely i will try )

Also is there a good scope for programming environment in Plan 9 ?? I
would be programming in C....Are there pre built compilers for C in
Plan 9 that come with jus like Linux ?????
