Hello,

In a few days, July 16 exactly, the whole world (and the whole universe) will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the first official version of Syllable.
I took a little ahead and I booked the cake: http://blog.pairnic.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/birthday_cake.jpg

and also the Champagne here: http://collaredtimes.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/champagne-bottles.jpg

Absolutely not. In 2002, I was (already) a victim of Windows. Very Happy I knew Linux since the mid-90s but not Atheos.

At the beginning of 2009, I was looking for an alternative to Linux and I arrived on the site of Syllable. But I hesitated to register on the forum. I thought joining Aros because apparently there are more french users there.

But I don't regret my choice and now I'm having fun. Smile

My b'day is July 16, heh. I was around these forums even then, also known as oslover. At the time Syllable was vying with SkyOS by Szeleny. SkyOS is now defunct, I see Vanders has kept Syllable going. Good job.

Linux has joined Windows, spiritually. Systemd proves that. There is a group fighting to put systemd even on FreeBSD. I consider that "true believers" will migrate to niche operating systems like this one or Haiku, or even home brewed bare metal type systems.

None of the big four browsers, packaged with the big three operating systems, meets my criteria for trustworthyness anymore. I fell into a thread (I couldn't believe it was out in the open) - by developers of one of the "big four" - discussing how best to spy on people. OK - their terminology for this was couched in terms like "statistical data collection for enhancing the user's experience" - as usual. Patently obvious (to me anyway) was significant hidden agenda pressure to do this surreptitiously, in a way that was, under certain conditions, IMO, traceable. That was enough "significant hidden agenda pressure" for me to jump ship, and sail on my own like captain Jack Smile

The smart people know that mainstream software (OS or other), including the likes of most of Linux, is no longer a viable option. I think that people with the savy to know what's really happening, will always to be in the minority, and will use tight, compact little operating systems like the one in this domain, or derivatives of the same or similar.

Even if Kaj pulls the plug on this site, thinking that he is tired of reading one person's rants, or if Axel retires from Haiku, the source code bases will live on.

We grew up with Unix, DOS, Windows, Apple's various operating systems, and then Linux. All the while, we were like frogs in the pot, using the stuff gleefully and not noticing any downsides. Now, these are old friends. They couldn't do any wrong, of course.

Today, for one to accept the viability of mainstream software, one must be indeed ignorant of technology, or in complete denial. For the techies, it's the latter of course. Niche operating system have their share of problems too. Heck, I don't know for sure that Syllable doesn't phone home to mom once in a while (Just because I haven't checked). OK, I did the cursory check I always do, which is to watch the box's stream from another PC set up with with wireshark. But, that kind of thing is not exhaustive. Nevermind that - it doesn't really matter. The real point is that the code bases of these niche operating systems are manageable (by one person or a small team). So, with or without mom phones (NOT SAYING THERE ARE ANY!) - Syllable is attractive ... as is Haiku, Visopsys, and the like. So, Kaj: don't dispair. Syllable's day is coming. Certainly.

Thanks for the encouraging words. Smile

Sadly, I have to agree with your other points. Technology, especially software, is in a sad state. And it's not getting any better, because it's the trend that brought it there.

The Syllable framework that we created doesn't phone home, by the way, but we can't be entirely sure about the ported software that we put in. Even being very selective, it's massive.
