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.

As suggested on the VmwAROS forum, Murks Application Development Environment by Heinz-Raphael Reinke has been updated to version 0.5.2. The ADE has been placed into work:Murks drawer and all the necessary ASSIGNs have been corrected to the DH1: partition. I've successfully compiled the 'hello world' example, so it should work correctly. However, some beta testing may be needed after VmwAROS beta 0.2 (or so) will be released.
