RATIONALE: comp.os.inferno

Now that its developers kit is available on the World Wide Web,
the Inferno operating system should be considered for its own
discussion area on Usenet. Inferno was developed by Bell
Labs, the organization that pioneered both C and UNIX. The
Inferno mailing list is thriving, and Inferno continues
to be discussed on groups such as comp.lang.java.misc,
comp.lang.java.advocacy and comp.os.plan9.

A survey of comp.lang.java, comp.lang.java.misc and
comp.lang.java.advocacy on Dejanews finds 134 messages that mention
Inferno. Another 186 messages about Inferno were found in the
comp.os.plan9 newsgroup.

The proponents of this newsgroup, as listed at the end of this
document, believe that Inferno has proven its suitability for
a new Usenet group.

CHARTER: comp.os.inferno
