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.

"considering that the desktop is integrated into the kernel"

I'm sure it isn't. Vanders ?

No, it isn't. The desktop is "tied" to the system in the sense that there is no text-only interface, so if you don't run the appserver and at least one application, you get nothing at all, but it isn't "integrated into the kernel" in any other sense.
