Syllable, AtheOS

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the first release of Syllable Desktop, then plainly called Syllable 0.4.0. The original website and announcement are gone, and many other circumstances of the time have changed quite dramatically. The project is happy that Syllable is still here - which, judging by comparable ventures, is a feat to be proud of.

You realize haiku is basically split right into backwards compatible and development versions? which correspond to GCC 2.9x and GCC 4.x builds which are even distributed *together* as one installation!

Seriously Haiku has uptodate ports of most software even Mesa though it is currently lacking hardware acceleration.

Haiku even has Java and Netbeans and someone ran Thinkfree office which I tried out on Linux and it is acutally quite good dispite being non free! Haiku is pretty much leaving Syllable in the dust usability wise.
