RE: Can someone explain more about Syllable?

Doesit work well enough to surf the web and do basic tasks?

Yes, Syllable has basic applications available including the ABrowse web browser, Whisper email client and Chat Jabber client. The multi-media framework can play back audio and video in a lot of common formats. We have a decent development toolchain, and Rick has been working on the Sourcery IDE for quite some time. All basic stuff that you'd expect any OS to be able to do.
