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).

Sounds like more of a hassle then a VirtualBox, VMWare etc. appliance... Have to make and burn a CD that has no persistence and have to reboot any time I want to give it a spin?

Meh...

Err... You know that you can use your favorite VM (be it VMware, VirtualBox, etc...) to run a liveCD, right ?

I don't know why I even bother replying, but anyway...
A VMWare image is not the same thing. (BTW, they have those as well) For example, it doesn't give you an idea of the support for your hardware. It also doesn't "feel" the same way.
If you still don't understand the desire to run an alternative operating system directly on the hardware, please just accept that you're not the target audience.
