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?

You can still emulate a single address space, with memory protection.

I can understand that adds some complexity to the OS design. But then the problem is then code complexity, not performance overhead from memory protection (which is practically a non-issue in most modern architectures).

But then it is not my project. So whatever it is they want to do, it is their pregogative.
