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.

Multithreading and BE

JBQ- Wow, thanks for all of you comments. Makes me rethink jumping on the BE Development bandwagon, as some of the projects I have in mind might be a little too difficult to implement from the sounds of it. I do have one quick question though: UNIX and Linux are also multithreaded development environments, if I am not mistaken, so how has the problems you speak of been delat with by developers for those systems? Seems to me, with the surge in GPL'd sftware, that there is aloit of development going on there, so there must be a workaround. Thanks JW
