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).

The syllable development is that hillarius, that you even write about ported sdl-games, which in most cases just compile on syllable without any kind of work. In some cases some little changes had to be done to the makefiles.
Great Development, great success. Go on like that Kaj. The syllable situation becomes more and more funny. I have a lot of fun watching that funny syllable situation.
Syllable is still using gcc 4.1, and instead that you tell us that the latest gcc was ported to syllable, you tell us that some SDL-Games run on syllable.

To see what kind of people are "developing" for syllable i give a quote of the guy who "ported" that sdl games:

Bogomips:
"I even think that SDL may become more important as GTK or QT because it's easier with SDL."

How can somebody compare GTK or QT to SDL? Yes SDL is simple, if you do just very simple stuff. But try to make a useable userinterface (including something like a layout manager).

I dont want to say something bad about somebody, but it's really funny to see what developers syllable has.
With such developers I can imagine what a great future syllable will have :-).

I dont want to be mean, but it's really funny.
I recommand you, browse the syllable forum,and have some fun :-).
