Amiga & AROS The AROS distribution Icaros Desktop has made its next step towards compatibility with legacy Amiga workbench applications, including an entire AROS enviroment compiled for the classic Amiga platform, which is almost binary compatible with the original Amiga OS 3.1 (and its extensions). When the user needs an old program, he or she only has to fire up the AROS M68K environment and run the application. The Amiga virtual machine can optionally be set to run at startup like a system service.

Icaros Desktop Live! is more than a operating system, it's a distribution. A full desktop environment. The OS itself is some MBs big and may fit on a 3.5" CD-R, while Icaros' Light version, which is "the OS + mandatory programs" (like a browser, a media player, the janus emulator and a little more), barely fits into a 700 MB CD.


You'll get no arguments from me, paolone. You're doing a fantastic job on Icaros. It just keeps getting better and better, with more features each time it's released. Being able to run original Amiga 68K apps on current x86 hardware is something I'd never have believed possible. But, it is!
