Hm, but that is Syllable Server, i.e. Linux under the hood. As a Haiku developer who feels the pain of insufficient hardware support and sometimes lacking stability, I can really sympathize with trying to port your userland onto the Linux or another well established kernel. It's still sad, in a way, that this seems to be where the development resources are focused. At the same time, I wouldn't know at all where the development of Syllable is really currently focused on, since there has been like one or two posts to the Syllable mailing list in the last two years or so. Communication must be going on somewhere else, I suppose. Don't get me wrong, though! To start a clean, non-redundant userland on top of Linux is worthwhile in itself. I will be sure to checkout the results, but I am more interested in a desktop, not a server, don't know if it will ever take this direction.
