Hah! They didn't need to. The guys who designed Unix finally wound up 
their work once ported, and then said "we can do a lot better now" and 
Plan9 was born. The change was too dramatic for commerce to change for 
supposedly little reward, and so Plan9 was left on the backburner while 
a lot of its features were integrated into other *nix platforms (rc, 
file based devices, etc).

So in a way they did try to be better, but not exactly with the original 
designers blessing. And Plan9 is still an immature child... shame.
