  Syllable - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The syllable nucleus is typically a sonorant, usually a vowel sound, in the form of a monophthong, diphthong, or triphthong, but sometimes sonorant consonants like [l] or [r].
A heavy syllable is one with a branching rime or a branching nucleus — this is a metaphor, based on the nucleus or coda having lines that branch in a tree diagram.
In moraic theory, heavy syllables are said to have two moras, while light syllables are said to have one.

A syllable is a unit of speech that is made up of one or more phones (single sounds or "phonetic segments") and in turn makes up words.
English has relatively loose phonotactic restrictions; syllables may begin with up to three consonants (as in string or splash), and end with up to three or four (as in sixth or strength).
In Latin, for example, stress is regularly determined by the presence or absence of a coda in the syllable before the last.

 Definition of Syllable
A syllable (ancient Greek: συλλαβή) is a unit of speech that is made up of nucleus (most often a vowel) with one or more option phones (single sounds or "phonetic segments").
The syllable onset is the sound(s) occurring before the nucleus, and the syllable coda is the sound(s) occurring after the nucleus.
In some languages, including English, a consonant may be analyzed as acting simultaneously as the coda of one syllable and the onset of the next, a phenomenon known as ambisyllabicity.

Most vendors load an operating system onto the hard drive of a PC before delivering the PC, so, unless the hard drive of your PC has failed, you may not understand the function of an operating system.
As you'll soon learn, operating systems do many other things as well; for example, they generally provide a filesystem so that you can store and retrieve data, and a user interface so that you can control the operation of your computer.
Moreover, unlike most commercial operating systems, Linux is not sold under terms of a per-seat license; a company is free to purchase a single Linux CD-ROM diskette and install Linux on as many computer systems as they like.

The history of Syllable really begins with an operating system named BeOS, which was developed throughout the 1990's by a small company named Be made up primarily of former Apple employees who were dissatisfied with the direction of Apple.
They developed BeOS as a modern, powerful speed demon of an operating system that was particularly suited for heavy multimedia applications (you should have seen a BeOS machine running thirty simultaneous videos, smooth as butter).
Since then, the Syllable development team has been working to polish Kurt's work and turn it into a general-purpose operating system that anyone can use.

Syllable requires a processor that supports i586 (Pentium) instructions; this is a leftover from AtheOS; Kurt wrote some lines of i586 instructions in assembler.

 Editorial: Why New Operating Systems Won't Stand A Chance - OSNews.com
If you look at the state of the operating system world today, it is fairly easy to name the operating systems that have gained mainstream acceptance (which doesn't mean that it has to have a huge market share).
Two good operating systems (with their fair share of weaknesses as well, obviously), yet they never got off of the ground in the way that Linux or Windows has.
Syllable being open-source also has a flip side: it puts them in direct competition with something you don't really want to compete with in the current OS climate: Linux.
