Syllable, like pretty much any hobby os, is dead. The only ones surviving are either supported by corporations - Windows, Os X, QNX, Symbian, Android, Solaris, either supported by big comunities - Linux(es), FreeBSD, OpenBSD, OpenIndiana.


So ... Windows, Os X, QNX, Symbian, Android, Solaris are Hobby OSes?? That can't be what you meant. But neither does the other implication that hobby Oses are only alive and successful if they have as many people using them as those you listed as "not dead".

IMHO, a hobby OS is successful if its use and development is ... a hobby for 1 or more people. I don't go around and declare people's stamp collections to be failures because there are larger collections out there with more valuable stamps.

By the same logic, I declare you to be dead as you are not supported by a large community, and people don't use you on a regular basis to get work done.
