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.

...I can do everything I want with BeOS and AtheOS currently. AtheOS has the browser, BeOS the rest. ;) If I really need a mainstream OS, for example to play Quake, I would boot up Linux. Win2k is installed, but I really hate to boot it and I rarely have a reason for it. Most times I boot BeOS and AtheOS. Quite often, but that's not the problem, I really like their fast boot times. That's very cool if you do a lot of OS switching. ;) And it just "feels good" to turn on the PC. No endless wait anymore...
