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).

Since Syllable is an open source project, the malcontents are free to fork the project. In fact, they did, sort of, and this turned out to be the extent of their capabilities:

Since you know everything better, you are free to join them.

You know, not one single Pyro developer has commented on this story. We've stood on the sidelines & occasionally glanced at the arguments thrown back & forth, but we didn't get involved. In fact, since the fork, none of us have said anything negative to or about you. But now, you sit there & point at us in a mocking manner. However, you should know that we're actually not doing worse than Syllable. We're spending our time working on the actual OS, not on bullshit snatched from the far reaches of the web. Sure, defend your group, I can't blame you for that. But don't you dare try to do it at the expense of Pyro! We're quiet, because we're actually doing work. We're actually trying to take what we forked & actually make it more usable. By looking at your repository, it might actually seem as if you've done a lot of work, since you do commits. But, let's be honest here, you do commits to the core system for developers who don't actually have commit access. Once again, you're sitting here spreading lies about your developmental prowess, but nothing's actually being accomplished. Also, if you ported Mesa3D, why are you using PicoGL running against SDL as your Somehow, you think that putting EVERYTHING on top of SDL will solve all of your problems, but you're sadly mistaken. I supposed you thought that you could create Syllable Server, & use it to control the direction of both Server AND Desktop. Unfortunately for you, you only succeeded in driving almost everyone away. Who knows, maybe the sun has set on Syllable Desktop, since you're not a system developer.

You've made your bed, so now it's time for you to lie in it, Kaj. You did this to yourself. Pyro WILL NOT take any of the heat for you. Instead, we'll continue to work on improving the system. When we're ready to make an announcement, we'll do so. When we do so, it'll be an announcement of substance, not smoke & mirrors.

The funny thing is that you used to talk about how far ahead of Haiku we were. The whole time, Haiku was blowing past us at lightening speed. Now, Pyro's doing the same thing to Syllable. Hmmm.....I wonder...will you guys still be stuck using less than 2GB of system ram in 2015 or even 2020? Sure, it's fine to have a system that can function with such limited ram; but, why should it have to???
