Syllable, AtheOS The videos of the announcements made at the 2007 Syllable Conference are now available. For those who don't have Syllable 0.6.4 yet, there's a demonstration video [torrent, 75 MB AVI video]. Turning our attention to the future, there's a demonstration video of Syllable Server, the server companion to Syllable Desktop that is under development and is being built on the Linux kernel [torrent, 91 MB AVI video]. These videos contain some bloopers, but they decided to present them uncut. They were transcoded on Syllable with the Media Converter application. Also, there are a few contributed videos on YouTube: EFileBrowser on VMware, Syllable 0.6.3 on VirtualPC, on VMware, part 1 and part 2.

I have to admit, my first reacction was also "why bother?"

But looking at it another way, why not use different kernels for different purposes and bind them together with a common API. In some ways it makes more sense than trying to make a kernel be all things to all people (and I mean hardware just as much as I do people). It is good that there is an OS out there trying to be all things to all people, even if it will never succeed; that is wone of the things I like about linux.
