Syllable, AtheOS As the Syllable project predicted many years ago, version 3 of the REBOL programming language has finally been open sourced, under the Apache 2 licence (screenshot on Syllable Desktop). Also, the alpha version of the high-level Red programming language, supporting Syllable Desktop, has been released, by now in version 0.3.1 (screenshot, demo program, video at the Science Park in Amsterdam).

You only have to start Syllable once to experience that it's not Linux. Why don't you give it a try?

Syllable's concept has always been to be an excellent base to port existing open source software on. Syllable is a complete stack of its own: kernel, driver framework, application server, multi-media server, user-space toolkit, and a collection of native apps. Around that skeleton, by now more than 99% of the code is ported. How do you suggest we arrive at end-user functionality if we would reinvent the wheel for everything?
