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).

You're delusional. But of course, you want to be.

*Someone* is delusional for sure. But I won't get in to a pissing contest with you. But, Kai, most of what Cipri is saying seems pretty on the nose to me. Not about promised features, but about fake news and lack of development of the core Desktop OS. And for the record, a port isn't a port if it doesn't actually work as intended. Mesa isn't ported to Syllable if it doesn't actually render graphics.

The source repositories of the work presented here are openly available. Haven't you noticed the name on much of the work on particularly Red, or do you choose to ignore it?

With regards to Syllable, RED is about as interesting as an anal exam to most actual users. Wifi, 3d, improvements to the networking, printer drivers, graphic drivers - these are interesting. Faddy programming language that has been justified by grafting it in to as many places in the OS as possible - no one but yourself really cares.
