Syllable, AtheOS The developers of the open source, Amiga-inspired Syllable operating system have chalked up a new release, releasing version 0.6.7. Rohan Pearce at Techworld caught up with lead developer Kaj de Vos for a chat about what's new and the team's future plans. Last year OSNews posted a longer interview with him about the background of the project, also performed by Pearce.

Amiga?

Aren't the Amiga comparisons quite misleading? Syllable bears far more API similarity to BeOS, from what I renember. Uses the same Handler Message pattern, as well as servers (services) for many of the main functions (app server, is one that springs to mind.) As I remember it, Kutr Skaun stated that Atheos was originally inspired by AmigaOS, but that it had gone through a dramatic refactor since initial release.
