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.

These decorators are a waste of time; give me the ability to change the whole LAF. Or rather, give me a decent UI in the first place.

Please let us know when you have written a "decent UI". Right now, there's a few other things, that's a bit higher on the list...
No matter how "decent" the UI is, it's not worth much without a the rest of the system...

Please define "decent UI". If by that you mean Windows clone/Windows-like, then you're going have to code it yourself, they're busy doing important things that they feel are more important. If by that you mean "intuitive", please define intuitive as I cannot think of a way to quantify intuition. If by that you mean functional, have a look at KDE.
