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.

Member since:

From this links related to bug reports, I like one of the posts of kaj:

"Unfortunately, nobody has stepped forward to fix this bug yet. As far as I know, it's in several audio drivers. Anyone want to have a go at this limited problem that would be very useful to fix? I can't believe nobody is interested in a rare opportunity to do modern system development."

yes, he can't believe. But why does he not take this opportunity.

Of course, he likes, that the hard work is done by other people, and he wants only to apply their patches, and later he claimes that he did the most work, and therefore is opition has the greatest value. (I remember the dispute, where he used the word "meritocracy").

And another citation from kaj is (in a threat about a bug report):
"Yes, unfortunately, there have been no changes to the Radeon driver in a long time. It would be great if someone could update our driver port to the latest Linux version."

Again he is waiting and begging for gifts.
But why doesn't he, the so-called co-leader, do that kind of c/c++ coding? The answer is perhaps: he is so much occupied with "leading" syllable, that he has no time for coding.
