Syllable, AtheOS The first development build after Syllable 0.6.4 is here, with the new USB and scanning subsystem. The project was contacted by the Python project concerning support for the upcoming Python 3, so far resulting in an upgrade of the Syllable Python port to the latest release version 2.5.1. Also this weekend, Syllable got a new window decorator in Vista style [screenshot], 7-Zip, UnRAR and UnACE.

Could have they ever been less effective?

Its almost like Motif meets Vista title bar buttons.

Also, why the need for another Unix-like OS? There are hundreds of those already.

Did you try it? You can download a LiveCD or VMWare image if you like.

Syllable isn't UNIX like: it is POSIX/SuS compatible to a certain degree, but that doesn't automatically make it UNIX.
