Syllable, AtheOS "Arno Klenke has completed the first version of a new audio framework for Syllable. The new system is inspired by ALSA, which makes it more Object Oriented, streams oriented and more flexible. Parts of the stream handling have been 'pushed up' into user-space as part of the media server. The first version supports Intel ICH and Via VT82xx AC'97 chipsets and the new HD-Audio standard."

(*)the project started only 3 years after Linux and hasn't reached the status that Linux had 8 years ago (when I started using it).

To be fair, while Atheos may have been started in 1994 it wasn't released to the public until 2000 and it was still pretty much a solo project until Syllable forked off in 2002. By that point most open source developers with both the appropriate knowledge and interest to really drive Syllable forward were probably already involved in more established projects like Linux and the BSDs.
