Just so you are aware some concepts from Plan9 which have already been ported:

    bind mounts
    Fusefs
    ProcFS
    union mounts
    plumber via ~/.mailcap: https://www.desy.de/web/mosaic/mailcap.html
    secstore via passwordstore.org or hashicorp vault+vaultfs fuse module
    v9fs and diod (services for the 9p2000 filesystem)
    dial via netcat or socat.
    ssh [cpu(1)] and the https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/man1/rc.1.html
    faces via https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/man1/xfaces.1x.html
    ndb via https://github.com/mischief/ndb

Sadly though the native graphing and statistic reporting tools isn't well enough published. Let alone other tools have more features. So I doubt anyone will attempt a port those over to linux.

Plan9 is so much more than just Acme, rio, and plumber, e.g. the desktop environment. There is a lot of internals that one doesn't see because of how well designed the OS is with "everything is a file" much of which is just shoehorned into other Nixs from external tools.

searching the forum i found this comment extoling some of the virtues of plan9
https://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,16998.msg101984.html#msg101984

and on a bit of a tangent recalled this "Plan 9 CPU command, in Go, for Linux"
