Re: Can someone explain more about Syllable?

"The lack of hardware support, games, and 3rd party apps did BeOS in IMHO. Won't this just be the same problem with Syllable?"

But Syllable is not BeOS. It's Free Software, and anybody can contribute to it. At one time, everybody said what you just said about Linux - but not anymore. It's a matter of gathering momentum, and it looks like Syllable is gathering pace as a community.

Put another way, if Syllable can become as popular as BeOS once was, it'll absolutely blossom and such support will be provided by the community. Out of all the "hobby" Free Software OSes, I think Syllable is the one to watch. It's looking like it has a bright future if current progress is maintained.
