I understand Syllable is released under the GNU GPL, which is the same as linux.

Can I make a distro off of Syllable, like people do with linux and BSD as long as my distro is released under the GNU GPL?

Please read our copyrights document. Many licenses are used in Syllable, and you can't relicense them, so there's no point in saying that the entire system is under the GPL. You can make your own version of Syllable, though, although we encourage you to only do this if there is a good reason for it.

Does that also apply to the AtheOS? Is it solely the GPL or GPL plus other licenses?

Same thing: Syllable is the direct successor of AtheOS.

Why would you want to make an extra distro of Syllable, or even AtheOS?
