Syllable, AtheOS

The Syllable project is pleased to announce that the reports of its death have been greatly exaggerated, and that the new version 0.4 of Syllable Server has been released. This release focuses on maturing existing functionality, improving security, ongoing system restructuring, and making the system a suitable base for third-party package managers. Although the project admits it hasn't brought its unicorn factory online yet, extensive work was done on the nitty-gritty, so the full change log is quite long.

I have to agree with this. Syllable seems to be stagnant. I visit the web site and before the server announcement the most recent news was six months old.

I like Syllable (I helped choose the logo) but progress is so slow that when they make a release, it surprises me that they are still around.

I have always said that part of the problem with Syllable is that the developers don't eat their dog food. Do any of the Syllable developers use Syllable as their primary OS? I have a hard time believing that they do because if they did, they would see how much is left to be done.
