RATIONALE: comp.lang.limbo

Since the Inferno developers kit has become available on the World
Wide Web, its programming language -- Limbo -- has been the source of
discussion by programmers attempting to learn the language and create
applications with it. Inferno was developed by Bell Labs, the
organization that pioneered both C and UNIX. The Inferno mailing list
is thriving, and Inferno-related matters such as Limbo continue 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 Limbo has proven its suitability for a new
Usenet group.
