Looks like syllable is getting forward, I see them releasing all the time... You said it's a good OS, I haven't tried it, can you post your views on the OS? Or do you know of a good review? I might be interested in trying it some time in the near future when I get some more diskspace...

...wonder if this one works better than the live cd I have at the moment.

It sure looks nice, but it kept crashing on me.

Gotta burn a new live cd soon ;)

Arno Klenke has achieved quite an improvement over the previous app server! The redraws are absolutely smooth and there are virtually no trails of moving windows or anything like that. The previous release had quite some problems in this respect. The overall stability has also improved for me.
Congratulations to the Syllable team and I can only recommend Syllable to fans of alternative operating systems.

We will probably introduce a professionally made CD soon that you would be able to order from Lulu. I think they take credit cards.

I think they're saving the final GUI polishing for a little further down the road when the API has mostly solidified -- and when they're a little closer to a 1.0 release.

No sense in making it *look* really good right now if the ground underneath is still settling.

Syllable is going to rock. When it hits critical mass (that is, once we get closer to 1.0 and more app developers can start jumping aboard), I think you're going to see a serious spike in the number of Syllable users.

Unlike certain other operating systems, the Syllable designers have been focusing on the underlying system and making it stable instead of 'pretty fluffy features' that make people go 'OOOOooooh, its soooo pretty!'

I think Syllable is going in direct competition with Haiku OS...

OS structure and functionality are similar, also right now!! It will be nice to compare the two and review the various features and overall stability.

maybe you are right if we speak of goal but at the moment Syllable works, Haiku does't!!

This is probably the most promising NEW free/open OS out there. Haiku is years away from this level of usability and the fifty-thousand BSD forks and Linux distros that seem to pop up every day aren't really doing anything new...

Anyway, for an OS at only 0.6, this is pretty good already.

Thanks for all the kind words, folks!

From my perspective, Syllable isn't necessarily in direction competition with other OS'es. It's different. It has a different goal and a different viewpoint. As a Syllable devotee, I would be happy if various homes and offices use Syllable as well as other operating systems.

I support a healthy OS ecology. I believe that Syllable deserves to be part of that ecology.

Well, it has Emacs, which a very full-featured text-processor :-) But it's not quite a 'word processor' in the MS Office / AbiWord sense though...
