Syllable, AtheOS The Syllable project has published the source code for Syllable Server. The code to build Syllable is maintained in Builder, the build system. There is a main repository of build specifications and overlays for Syllable Desktop and Syllable Server. The code for Server is now completely published in the source repository. A package of Builder (11 MB) for Syllable Server has been released that corresponds to Syllable Server 0.2 with a few fixes. The procedure to build Syllable Server will be the subject of an article in a future Syllable Newsletter.

The xcb library is also not a soulution and is not actively developed.

Wrong on both counts.
1) XCB is transparently threadsafe. Now that it exists, there's nothing from making toolkits that are
completely thread-safe and async.
2) XCB is actively developed, and is actually now the base for Xlib.

for example posix message queues instead of dbus

Have you ever looked at d-bus? It doesn't even vaguely resemble posix message queues.

1) DBus is strongly typed. I can look at a dbus message, and see what "object" in the process it's
directed at. I can look at the types of arguments and the methdods. Etc.
Posix message queues are closer to raw sockets than to dbus.

or implement fam as a library and not as a daemon which just wastes resident memory

Because having a daemon to handle the kernel's job AND a library to interact with the daemon is so much better. Right.

Sorry, but even though inotify isn't all that great, I'd rather have a thin wrapper library around it than a daemon, and a thin wrapper library around the daemon.
