Icaros Desktop is a pre-configured AROS desktop environment for the PC platform, distributed on a bootable live media. The AROS Research Operating System is a open source lightweight, efficient and flexible desktop operating system, aiming at being compatible with AmigaOS 3.1 at the API level, while improving on it in many areas.

This version of VmwAROS is obsolete. If you've come here following a direct link to this page, please download VmwAROS 0.5 instead.

It's time for a beta release. At this stage VmwAROS is far from being complete, however I think that an appetizer would be just fine. This snapshot already contains some nice features:

- Networking made easy
- File sharing with host operating system
- Customizable themes
- A pre-configured SFS Work: partition

And some interesting applications already installed in Work:, like Lunapaint, WookieChat, MUIbase, Vice, AmiGG, ScummVM and many others. More to come in next releases. So, what are you waiting for? Just click here and download the first VmwAROS snapshot from Wikifortio (download will be available for 3 months only).

> DOWNLOAD VmwAROS beta 0.1

In order to make the network and file sharing service running correctly, a little patch with a newer version of ConfigIP is needed. Please download also this little ISO image and mount it in VMware as CD-ROM, then drag the Prefs icon into the AROS: drive and overwrite the existing one.
