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.

Scaramantic people may think 13 is a unlucky number. However, I downloaded today's nightly build and everything ran fine (yes, I have warm- and cold-reset the machine, and AROSTCP gave no problems at all). I got some minor compatibility issues, though (Ltris and Moira3D not working anymore, YAFS that doesn't display filenames properly on FTP clients, etc), but nothing that prevents me from announcing AROS beta 0.6's availability in the next days.
