Syllable, AtheOS Syllable 0.6.1 is the latest incarnation of the operating system that "will be a reliable and easy-to-use GPLed operating system for the home and small office user" as their website states. That's quite a noble cause most other alternative operating systems never claim to be able to market to non-technical audience one day. Even getting Syllable up and running is pretty easy: fully-working VMWare images and a LiveCD images are provided for free download. Apparently, Danes are the primary downloader of the Syllable LiveCD, given the primary language in which the LiveCD page is by default.

We'd love to use Firefox. All we need to do is port it. That would take about two man-months of work, which no one has right now. We need more developers, as always.

I'd love to see Thunderbird as well, but I much prefer Whisper (not simply because I wrote it). Whisper may have a few bugs, but it's still a nice email client (& the executable comes in at a whole 1010KB Large by Syllable standards but tiny compared to Thunderbird, Evolution, KMail etc.)
