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've seen pardus and if you're thinking "ah, like pardus" then you missed the argument I am making by several miles. Hint: Pardus still uses KDE. Pardus just builds a relatively coherent system, otherwise it's a lot like almost every other Linux distribution. I'm proposing no KDE, no X, no dbus, no pulseaudio.

If implementing your own non-X windowing system loses you some driver support... well so be it, some is better than all which is what a brand-new system would require.

That sounds exactly like Syllable Server, so I'm confused why you called it crappy earlier.
