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?

This is my guess too.

Not that I think that no memory protection is a worthy goal, it is not, BUT in an ecosystem where there is no memory protection apps that leak memory or do other shit with memory get eradicated fairly quickly, because people will stop using them and get replaced by better alternatives or they will get fixed quickly.

In my years with the Amiga I haven't had real problems with seg faults. Blue screens on Windows were/are much more common.
