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."

Oh I see, thanks for the answer So it's about shared objects... Well I guess at least it's a good technical reason for not having protection.

Indeed. AmigaOS solves the whole problem of poor microkernel performance by eliminating the source of all the context switches that cause said problems.
