Syllable, AtheOS

The current development build of Syllable Desktop has a greatly increased installation menu. The options for IDE and USB CD players were merged, so that the troubleshooting options can now also be tried with a USB CD player. Specific installation options were added for the Acer Aspire One and ASUS EeePC netbooks. The EeePC requires compensation for its shifting of drive positions, which is now performed by the installer. This was tested by Hans Rood on the Summer SylCon, and the Aspire One was tested by Ruud Kuin.

The incurable punster in me thinks that it should have been named "SyllaCon," not "SylCon." ;)

hs a really bright future. My only expectation is to see at some point collaboration/merging with GNU HURD. (yes I am a GNU freak). But Syllable can provide Desktop+Drivers+ports and HURD can provide kernel/ukernel.

Um, that would make Syllable (& GNU HURD) a completely different operating system. Not to mention most Syllable drivers come from Linux, and it is no harder (in fact, probably easier) to port Linux drivers to Syllable than it is to port them to HURD.
