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.

Documenting effort

VmwAROS LIVE! and VmwAROS beta 0.7 have been in a feature-freeze and debugging stage for 10 days, this means that anything published for AROS in the last two weeks won't be included in this release. I'm sorry for that, but I think that a more stable distribution is better than a fresh but untested one. This feature-freeze status allowed me to write a quick and dirty user/reviewer guide, which is some sort of 22 pages manual in English (well, not the official English, but my one - which is bad - but at least it is easy to understand). You will find it in the net /Docs directory of VmwAROS, with João Ralha's AROS manuals too. It will not cover all VmwAROS things, but it will be enough to help people understanding the basics of our operating environment.
