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 developers could at least update the Syllable wiki page.

Do you think the wikipedia site of syllable is not update because they have no time for that?
It's not updated because they feel better with the old and wrong information.

For example, there it is written:
Developers:
Kristian Van Der Vliet, Kaj de Vos, Rick Caudill, Arno Klenke, Henrik Isaksson.

Now from that list they would have to remove all except kaj!

They would need to update to the page the fact, that syllable is as good as stagnant since a lot of time, due to the fact that kaj is not a c++ developer (he is the scripting guy, and anyone knows that you can develop an OS with scripting languages).

Why would they update that site? To write there how much they failed, and in what bad situation they are now? To write there that their leader vanders abandonated them?

Kaj is still hoping that using wrong information he has perhaps more chances to attract more developers/users.

And somebody asked for solutions:
Dear friends, there is no solution. What solution do you have when a clown is flying an airbus? None.

The only solution that might help, is that kaj leaves the project, then I can imagine that most of the developers would come back.

The funny thing is, once kaj decided to leave, but vanders, changed his mind. And not much time later, vanders itself was the once who left :-)).

Wow, you are so a disgruntled ex-developer/user of Syllable. Too bad your tone is so off-putting, because I think there's valid points in your posts too.
