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?

RE[2]: No memory protection

Memory protection is a controversial topic in AROS-dom. Some people think that having it would make AROS more secure and better able to handle ports from other (non-Amiga) systems. Other people point out that it would hurt performance and unless done VERY carefully would hurt source-compatibility with other Amiga clones and would almost certainly kill the binary compatibility that the 68K port currently has with AmigaOS.
