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.

An annoying issue plagues VmwAROS 0.1 and 0.5 betas: they can't run on some (rare) host computer systems, because their system partition use a filesystem unable to handle files bigger than 2 GB. Well, I'm happy to announce that the next release won't be affected by this problem anymore. I would like to apologize with everyone that downloaded and can't run VmwAROS for this issue, and thank Nic Andrews and Michal Schulz for their hints about this.
