Syllable Desktop is a discontinued free and open-source operating system for Pentium and compatible processors. Its purpose is to create an easy-to-use desktop operating system for the home and small office user. It was forked from the stagnant AtheOS in July 2002.

It has a native web browser (Webster, which is WebKit-based), email client (Whisper), media player, IDE, and many more applications.

Another version of Syllable OS is the Syllable Server, which is based on Linux core.

Features[edit]

Features according to the official website include:

  • Native 64-bit journaled file system, the AtheOS File System (usually abbreviated to AFS in this context; not to be confused with the Andrew File System which shares the same abbreviation)
  • C++ oriented API
  • Object-oriented graphical desktop environment on a native GUI architecture
  • Mostly POSIX compliant
  • Software ports, including Vim, Perl, Python, Apache, others.
  • GNU toolchain (GCC, Glibc, Binutils, Make)
  • Preemptive multitasking with multithreading
  • Symmetric multiprocessing (multiple processor) support
  • Device drivers for most common hardware (video, sound, network chips)
  • File system drivers for FAT (read/write), NTFS (read) and ext2 (read)
  • Rebol as system scripting language
