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?

Or it could ultimately lead to relative scarceness of mature software, deficiency of features, slow development, stagnation, experiments not leading anywhere, hitting some limits of progress when the code base starts to become fragile?
Hm, that might partly describe what already happened, once...

Anyway, even the present ports of some important, big, and good tools don't seem so well, when compared to the originals on major platforms.


Also, we were probably doing much less on Amigas in the first place and/or we were more forgiving (or even: the past & rose-coloured glasses?)
