Syllable, AtheOS

Kristian Van Der Vliet has implemented asynchronous input/output. This has been tested with QEmu, which shows increased performance both due to this and the also new implementation of memory-mapped files. A development build with async I/O is already available.

I've always been interested in Syllable, but haven't yet been able to try it out.
I notice that Syllable Desktop does not use the Linux kernel, while Syllable Server does use the Linux kernel.
So, to those who develop Syllable or those who already could try Syllable: Is the Syllable Desktop kernel really "better" for desktop use than the Linux kernel? If so, in what way?
Or is it just a matter of pride? (It took years to create the kernel, that's why we continue using it, no matter if it's actually better!)
