Syllable, AtheOS Syllable 0.6.1 is the latest incarnation of the operating system that "will be a reliable and easy-to-use GPLed operating system for the home and small office user" as their website states. That's quite a noble cause most other alternative operating systems never claim to be able to market to non-technical audience one day. Even getting Syllable up and running is pretty easy: fully-working VMWare images and a LiveCD images are provided for free download. Apparently, Danes are the primary downloader of the Syllable LiveCD, given the primary language in which the LiveCD page is by default.

I dont know any of them in deep but some differences I can see:
Haiku uses a microkernel with services running on top.
Syllabe uses a modular kernel but the modules run in kernel space.
Im not sure but I think Syllabe uses a more modern C++ (or at least they use namespaces) while Haiku has all the classes with the prefix "B", just like Qt uses "Q".
Haiku tries to replicate BEOS in all his aspects.

"Haiku uses a microkernel with services running on top."
It does not. See below.

"Syllabe uses a modular kernel but the modules run in kernel space. "

Just like Haiku.
