Syllable, AtheOS The first development release of Syllable Server is available. It provides a text mode Linux environment, but also contains a preliminary graphical environment built on the framebuffer device, with DirectFB and SDL on top. The planned graphical environment from Syllable Desktop is not included yet. The installation procedure is short, but is still manual - and resembles the installation procedure for the old AtheOS. Included are tools such as a graphical web browser, a file manager and an editor. One thing Syllable Server is designed for is to function as a light-weight virtualisation platform for running other operating systems (or multiple instances of itself). The QEmu virtualisor/emulator is included, and the KQEmu Accelerator kernel module is integrated into the system. There's a screenshot of Syllable Server running on Syllable Desktop, installation and usage instructions, a torrent (preferred), and an installation package [.tar.7z].

Well... Kudos to Vanders and the Syllable team. Always great to hear the project keeps maturing.

I would like to know what is the "vision" they have for the server branch. I mean, what do they have in mind to make it a better, or at least a different approach, to something like a minimalistic Linux server (other than "because it can be done", which I would find a very good reason already ;) ).

Also, did a quick glimpse on their website but couldn't find about sys requirements?

TIA

If you had followed the link "installation and usage instructions" you would have found the minimum requirements at the top of the document ;-)
