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).

Having time to spare in developing proyects like this is always difficult, and it gets worse as time goes by and you have to become more and more involved with "real world" issues.

Surely this is not only 'not a joke' but the product of as much or as little time as the devs could devote. They could always choose to do nothing and share nothing, yet they offer what they have.

The last thing they need is harsh comments, the least they deserve is a pat in back.

Thank you Syllable team!, there is always people who appreciate your work, even is perhaps not "loudly" enough. Best wishes.

[q]Having time to spare in developing proyects like this is always difficult[\q]
Yes, it's especially difficult, if you hunted away the developers, and you are alone, and you are not able to write decent c++ code, and have just "scripting abilities".

[q]They could always choose to do nothing and share nothing, yet they offer what they have.[\q]

Yes, that's what they did in most cases. They have gone! Vanders didnt contribute anymore for a long time. Just kaj is still there and being occupied with making conferences :-))

[q]The last thing they need is harsh comments, the least they deserve is a pat in back.[\q]

Syllable forked from Atheos, and it was little OS with a big potential. If you managed to destory it, then you deserve at least the critics.
