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?

AmigaOS is a Single Address Space OS, where an App or OS can pick any object of other applications. That makes data passing and sharing easy and fast. As I see it, the only way to do memory protection transparently is protection domains that require tagged memory allocations to specify data access rights.
