Syllable, AtheOS AtheOS is a modern, free (GPLed) Operating System written from scratch in C++. A big chunk of the OS is POSIX compliant, supports multiprocessing and it is GUI-oriented (fully OOP). Today we are hosting an interesting interview with the AtheOS creator, Kurt Skauen. Kurt is talking about his views on binary compatibility in future versions, multithreading and the future of his OS in general.

BeOS Threading Problems
by Bart Grantham on Mon 27th Aug 2001 06:27 UTC

Hm! This is interesting indeed. Eugenia, could you coax JBQ to speak up on the problems with multi-threading under BeOS? You say there are serious problems with it, but what do you mean? Is it that BeOS itself has problems, or is it that having a pervasively multi-threaded OS creates problems that become really troublesome with large software projects? As for AtheOS, I'm dying for it to start supporting sound, but I guess Kurt has his hands full at the moment and it's dangerous to start building that kind of infrastructure without leadership from the 'main guy'.
