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).

Dee, you're in a worse state than I thought. You still don't get it. You're not getting Pyro to work because you tried to delete all my hard work from it. The fact that you simply deny my work tells a story in itself.

All these years you have been claiming that our decisions to use Linux and REBOL lead to no being said to native Syllable work, but despite my repeated asking you have failed to come up with even one actual example. Maybe you can give one now?


Let's get something straight, we've already replaced your cheap build system. Our build system works. We already have Pyro images. What's a work in progress is a native GUI based installer. This is something that's been on the Syllable roadmap, but has never had work started on it. Also, we're replacing the chaos of sIDE, Catalog Editor, Sourcery, & any other stray tool that you guys have to string together with an actual full-fledged IDE. In addition, there's the matter of improving the driver framework & writing new drivers. The issues we're having have nothing to do with middleware scripting bullshit, we're having issues because we're addressing the parts that you seem to be ignoring --THE ACTUAL OPERATING SYSTEM. I suppose that you don't have these issues, since you don't do any operating system development or any native application development. Had you done any, you would've also come across missing or partially implemented functionality in libsyllable (which we've been addressing in libpyro). Also, you'd be a fool to think that the codebase at our website is an accurate representation of our state of affairs. We're OS developers, not web developers. We're also actively working on a port of git, so that we can to repo management natively from within Pyro, rather than from another host OS. So, if I'm so incompetent, why am I talking about actual OS development while you're still gluing middleware into your OS & hoping for sympathetic developers to aid your cause? Perhaps you should mirror our approach - sit down, stfu, write some f'n OS code; it just might work out for you. Oh, wait, you don't know how to do that...sucks for you!

By the way, Kaj, when's Syllable's acpi busmanager going to be finished? Will will your USB hid driver learn the difference between a keyboard/mouse & a joystick? We've already started addressing such issues. Users care about the repercussions of such things. Your curser shouldn't get hijacked when a USB joystick is plugged in. Then again, I supposed it's acting just like you...

You have a very strange idea of modern operating system development. Where is Pyro, then? As long as you don't publish it, it's just vapourware.

Vapourware, like Syllable 0.6.7??? We all know that all you really did was rebadge Syllable 0.6.6 as 0.6.7. Pyro will be released when it's ready to be released, & not before that. I suppose Syllable 0.6.8 is when you'll end up merging Server & Desktop? Not that there'll actually be a real merge. More than likely, you'll just toss Desktop & rebadge Server as both Server AND Desktop.
