Syllable, AtheOS After two months of testing the release candidate, the Syllable project presents Syllable Desktop 0.6.7. The release notes detail many changes and additions, such as the first 3D functionality in Syllable (screenshot - the screenshot shows tearing because the demos are animating at full speed. This is an artifact of the screenshot process, not of the actual display). Other highlights include that REBOL 3 and Boron are now included and that the system is now prepared for the upcoming high-level Red programming language.

Improved installation, with support for specific configurations such as the Asus EeePC.


I have an EeePC going spare - i might test it on this. Would be interesting to see it on bare metal rather than the usual emulation route

Operating systems like Syllable and Haiku excite me. I feel as if they're so close to reaching the tipping point of having "no users because there's no applications / no applications because there's no users" problem, but just need a little something to push them over the edge.

Maybe sometime in my life I'll be using one of them as my primary operatng system. Linux has only been around about 20 years, maybe something like that will happen again.

I'm so glad to see Syllable is still progressing.
