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).

Because when it doesn't work on your system and you report that back, the developers give you additional in depth debugging homework to figure out why it didn't work for your system. If you're not careful, you'll soon be a developer without realizing it.

Only works with alternative Operating systems with smaller user bases.

In the case of Syllable, you tell them that it isn't working, and they shake their heads, telling you they don't know why :-)
