"Now the syllable class has been around since AtheOS days, so does it not look like it is an exact copy?

Do you not see that Robert does use GPL code?"

The similarities between the various classes interfaces (and not just the ones you linked to) are really impressive. But that only proves, if anything, that Robert took inspiration from Syllable's api.

Of course, since we cannot see SkyOS's code, we can't tell if he also copied the implementation of the classes.
