The goal of the Syllable project is to create a family of easy-to-use free software operating systems. It is the continuation of the BeOS-like AtheOS.
Syllable Desktop has its own C kernel with symmetric multiprocessing, multithreaded pre-emptive multitasking, high POSIX compliancy, 64-bit journaled filesystem (AFS) with metadata, an integrated native GUI architecture with an object-oriented C++ API, SDL, singular native toolkit and multi-user desktop environment. The system seeks to be an integrated, lightweight, easy-to-program, powerful, high-performance graphical desktop environment which avoids legacy OS paradigms that frustrate developers and have hindered the computing masses' adoption of a free-software desktop.
Syllable Server is a matching small and efficient Linux server.
