As stated in our review of Symphony b1p1, interest in that OS is growing expediently and is now evidenced by its site going offline.

As stated, the links to download your copy of Symphony OS Beta 1 preview 1 are still available. If support is needed, "while the forums are closed the IRC channel is open. Join us on irc.freenode.net in #symphonyos "
