Plan9

Plan9 is an an operating system from Bell Labs, the same people who brought you C, UNIX, the transistor, and many other things. Plan9 has always been rather obscure but has built up some popularity over time.

It takes the concept of UNIX - everything is a file - to the extreme. It also embraces namespacing, the 9p file server, siplicity, and system modularity.
