Syllable, AtheOS Syllable's resident graphics designer Ruud Kuin has published the first issue of his Syllable Development Newsletter [screenshot]. This new project is a continuation of the SDN magazines by Michael Saunders that were popular around two years ago. The first issue contains five main articles and five smaller ones, for a total of eleven pages, by six contributors. Subjects range from a developer interview to the first part of a programming tutorial series. It is accompanied by an archive that conveniently collects software that was released recently: three pieces this time.

I really liked this newsletter, if I wanted to be picky.... no ;) it was a great read and very interesting to learn of AthOS and resulting forks, I kept my eye on all these projects as they haev progressed.

I really like linux but agree 100% that its a complex system with files all over the place and overkill for desktop use in most cases, also dogged by the need to support old libs like X11.

Syllable server is really exciting too, a non X11/ overlay on the linux kernel. look forward to this.

Bzzzt, you're confusing Linux the kernel with the current Linux distributions which makes Unix-clones with their benefits (lots of software) and defaults: filesystem mess..

Look at MacOS X, who complains that the kernel is Mach with a FreeBSD personality below?
Noone, because no one cares.

Blue Eyed OS and Cosmoe tried to implement BeOS API on top of Linux, AFAIK they have not succeeded because of a lack of manpower, not because of technical problems.

Your right, I should have said "Common Linux-Distrobutions"

But since were comparing 2 os's here - I think its fair to compare say ubuntu/fedora etc with syllable.
