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?

In News Post"no fancy PowerPC hardware required"

Why would yet another emulator need platform specific
hardware? That's just silly.

"would hurt source-compatibility with other Amiga clones"

Hard to believe they have spent 12 years and it's still
not even close to Cloantos Amiga Forever product.

Oh well, it's free....and worth every penny.

It's not an Emulator. It's a full OS that includes an emulator to run older software.

Just like MacOS X used to be able to run classic MacOS software.
