Amiga & AROS Icaros Desktop 1.1.1 has been released. Icaros Desktop is a distribution of the AROS operating system. "This newer version provides the latest system files, including the newer ata.device from Neil Cafferkey, which fixes many incompatibility issues and should help people who couldn't try AROS before, to boot it on their computers. This new releases includes also an improved version of the OWB browser and fixes some system issues encountered with the 1.1 release. For this reason, this update is available in two versions: an update CD for Icaros Desktop 1.1 users and a complete full live! DVD for new users."

Man, I'd love them to release a version of AROS for netbook's because it would really fly on the machine - and have an awesomely easy to use operating system.

Did you follow the link at all?

It shows the OS running on an Acer Aspire One. Aka, a netbook. ;)

A better question would be to ask whether you did?

And perhaps to ask if your reading comprehension is lacking? The article clearly states the Aspire One is running QEMU--which is short for Quick Emulator! I'm pretty sure most of us don't consider that to be native.
