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.
