Syllable, AtheOS

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the first release of Syllable Desktop, then plainly called Syllable 0.4.0. The original website and announcement are gone, and many other circumstances of the time have changed quite dramatically. The project is happy that Syllable is still here - which, judging by comparable ventures, is a feat to be proud of.

Oh hello cipri, I wondered when you'd show up!

I'm curious if kaj and vanders, if they would turn back in time, 10 years ago, if they would again start/continue working on syllable, if they knew that 10 years later if would come to this result.


Myself? Yes.

I think, as a celebration of 10 years of syllable, it would have been (at least for me personally) more interesting to see an overview made by you and kaj, about the last 10 years of syllable. But a honest one (not one meant to make publicity for syllable). And explaining again, how all started, and what happened over the years. What where the successes and the failures. What where the major events (good ones, but also the bad ones(e.g. arno leaving?)). And making a status report and explaining what the current situation of syllable is, and what is planned for the future.
Even the current situation might be a bad one, i think honesty will not harm that much, in this specific situation.

Except I'm not involved with Syllable beyond paying for the domains and occasionally annoying Kaj by posting on the forums about code I wrote years ago and getting it wrong, and I personally have more interesting things to do.

Besides going over the past doesn't change the present, unless you're Dr. Who.
