Syllable, AtheOS As the Syllable project predicted many years ago, version 3 of the REBOL programming language has finally been open sourced, under the Apache 2 licence (screenshot on Syllable Desktop). Also, the alpha version of the high-level Red programming language, supporting Syllable Desktop, has been released, by now in version 0.3.1 (screenshot, demo program, video at the Science Park in Amsterdam).

It's okay to have some stuff ported. The Amiga had WordPerfect, OS X has Microsoft Office, but these were/are not exact ports. Also both systems had a lot of unique software.

It would a shame really if everything on Syllable were exact ports.

I can't get the image to work, although if I play around with the settings I can get it to freeze different ways during boot. I'll try it on a real computer at home.

Your best quick bet is the live CD on real hardware, or running the install CD on a VirtualBox with an IDE disk, using the VirtualBox install option. It needs special Syllable kernel settings.
