Syllable, AtheOS Norwegian ex-Amiga coder Kurt Skauen started designing & writing AtheOS in 1996. Until late 1999, AtheOS (a name derived from the Greek Goddess Athena) used to be called AltOS. AtheOS has even seen complete rewrites along the years, and today is on version 0.3.7. Come with me and see what AtheOS has to offer today to you. All your questions answered and we also include five new screenshots.

I'd really like to know why AtheOS's on-screen text looks SO MUCH BETTER than the text on my Linux system (Mandrake 8.1, running KDE, with anti-aliasing on). Especially monospaced fonts... Konsole doesn't seem to agree with my theory that Andale Mono is a monospaced font. Stupid X11...

/me waits for an X11 fan to tell me _I'm_ stupid for not "simply" hax0ring some magic config file hidden somewhere on my system
