Icaros Desktop is a pre-configured AROS desktop environment for the PC platform, distributed on a bootable live media. The AROS Research Operating System is a open source lightweight, efficient and flexible desktop operating system, aiming at being compatible with AmigaOS 3.1 at the API level, while improving on it in many areas.

Icaros Desktop wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 2012 has been a very pleasant year for Icaros Desktop, with a rock solid release (1.4) followed by five updates and many patches. We started the 1.4 road with a new browser and with the ability to run classic Amiga games straight from their ADF files, and we ended up with including support to classic WB applications too. But now it is time to start a new journey, and we hope you'll enjoy the incoming 1.5 version as well. See you soon for more AROS fun in January 2013.
