SHRINK WRAPPED PLAN 9
A shrink wrapped release of plan9 is available directly from Vita Nuova. This package containins a CD of the Plan 9 and Inferno distributions, and Plan 9 manuals and papers in the form of high quality typeset books.
Inferno is an Open Source network operating system intended for embedded applications and distributed systems created by the same people that developed Plan 9 using many of the same ideas and technologies.
It is now developed and maintained by Vita Nuova.
It can run either 'hosted' inside another os (eg., *BSD, Linux, Plan 9, Windows) or on the bare hardware.

Plan B is a derivative of Plan 9 developed by F. J. Ballesteros and his students. While the original version was based on the third edition Plan 9 kernels, the Plan B team has moved Plan B into user space so it can be run on current Plan 9 systems.
