Syllable, AtheOS

The Syllable project is pleased to announce that the reports of its death have been greatly exaggerated, and that the new version 0.4 of Syllable Server has been released. This release focuses on maturing existing functionality, improving security, ongoing system restructuring, and making the system a suitable base for third-party package managers. Although the project admits it hasn't brought its unicorn factory online yet, extensive work was done on the nitty-gritty, so the full change log is quite long.

From this links related to bug reports, I like one of the posts of kaj:

"Unfortunately, nobody has stepped forward to fix this bug yet. As far as I know, it's in several audio drivers. Anyone want to have a go at this limited problem that would be very useful to fix? I can't believe nobody is interested in a rare opportunity to do modern system development."

yes, he can't believe. But why does he not take this opportunity.

Of course, he likes, that the hard work is done by other people, and he wants only to apply their patches, and later he claimes that he did the most work, and therefore is opition has the greatest value. (I remember the dispute, where he used the word "meritocracy").

And another citation from kaj is (in a threat about a bug report):
"Yes, unfortunately, there have been no changes to the Radeon driver in a long time. It would be great if someone could update our driver port to the latest Linux version."

Again he is waiting and begging for gifts.
But why doesn't he, the so-called co-leader, do that kind of c/c++ coding? The answer is perhaps: he is so much occupied with "leading" syllable, that he has no time for coding.

Please go troll somewhere else. I'm sure he and the other developers are busy coding, their just aren't enough of them to make any significant progress on Syllable Desktop, IMHO.

I was writing about kaj.
And perhaps you forgot, that some time ago, kaj saied, that he is spending "Full-Time" on syllable. (And of course without doing c++-coding for syllable).
And it was just an assumption. I asked him, more than once, to show us the last and the most important c++ - work he did. Are there any c++-applications he developed? And perhaps, and only perhaps, you don't know,that kaj, said with his own words, that he doesn't know much about the syllable api.

I'm happy for you that you can be so sure, without ever seen a proof. I guess you know the expression "dogma".

If you took a look at source code of the syllable api, you will know for sure who is rick. He can tell you more clearly about the c++-abilities of kaj.

It's not a problem that he is not strong at c++, the problem is, that he behaves like the leader, having the strongest word. And of course it's hard for a c++-developers, to continue, to be leaded and restricted by the opinions of a non-c++-developer.
And that's why most of the syllable-developers leaved syllable.

Adam, you don't know what great work related to syllable Jonas did, and how much it would have improved syllable and the syllable api, but because of kaj, this work didn't went into syllable.
