Syllable, AtheOS The Syllable project has published the source code for Syllable Server. The code to build Syllable is maintained in Builder, the build system. There is a main repository of build specifications and overlays for Syllable Desktop and Syllable Server. The code for Server is now completely published in the source repository. A package of Builder (11 MB) for Syllable Server has been released that corresponds to Syllable Server 0.2 with a few fixes. The procedure to build Syllable Server will be the subject of an article in a future Syllable Newsletter.

Could you elaborate your point about xcb design, I didn't understand it..

>>Since most people use X on desktop, it should have been developed for desktop and the networking stuff could be implemented as an extension.<<

Sorry but on office desktops, network transparency is really useful, so I like the network transparency "by default" design.

>>Noone even uses native X over the network because it's so damn slow.<<

So I'm 'noonne'? Unless you restrict a network to Internet, I'm using X over a LAN each day at work..

Blatant exaggerations make really hard to take your points seriously, you know..

>>Also when you drag X windows you can sometimes see subwindows jerking because of synchronisation issues.<<

It's nice that you care about this issue and you try to fix it but frankly, I personally couldn't care less about this issue and wouldn't trade network transparency for a fix to this issue.
