Syllable, AtheOS The Syllable project has released a live CD for Syllable Desktop 0.6.6. It has been a long time since the last live CD, so Syllable 0.6.5 was skipped. The creator of the original live CD left the project, without releasing the build scripts. Further it turned out that a needed patch to Syllable wasn't available, either, so the project had to create a whole new live CD, including a modified kernel. Also, some eighty SDL programs were recently ported to Syllable (video of the Power Manga game).

...Syllable's actual development would speed up for a change. You know, actually release something new.

I mean, what is this? A live CD updated to the latest and greatest April 30, 2009 "standard" version of Syllable 0.6.6? Is this a joke? Eh, you're a little late at releasing that "live" version, don't you think? Seriously, as interesting as I find Syllable and as much as I would like it to succeed, I can't find an updated "live" image interesting. How about an actual new version, for a change?

Releasing a usable live CD is a great way to get new developers.

Why? Do developers work on a live-cd normally?
If I give you a live-cd with Windows XP or Puppy Linux, will you become a Windows/Linx developer?
