Amiga & AROS Version 1.3.2 of the Icaros Desktop is now available. Icaros Desktop is one of the prime AROS distributions, ready to be used on your desktop today - no fancy PowerPC hardware required (like with AmigaOS or MorphOS). If I can get this running, it might be about time we took a closer look at this, don't you think? Thoughts?

Thom,

If I can do it, so can you. If you want explicit partitioning and disk drive setup instructions, you can read the articles I did on version 1.2.6.

Please overlook the first sentence in the first article. I don't know what I was thinking. Anyway, I've since installed on real hardware, and it works just as well.

Gullible Jones is right, though. AROS has no memory protection. I've gotten the same occasional "guru meditation" screens I've seen on real Amigas.
