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?

Much like Haiku, it's chugged along under constant-but-slow development for a long time and it's starting to look really impressive. 3D acceleration, reasonably good support for USB devices, and an astonishingly high level of source compatability with other Amiga-like OSes make it a real winner. Also, while Icaros doesn't target this yet, the 68K version of AROS has really started to mature in the last few months, providing the Amiga hardware clone and emulation scene with a (legal) free OS capable of running classic software for the first time.

Go AROS!
