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.

Classic VmwAROS for VMware products has been renamed into VmwAROS VE (virtual environment), in order to generate less confusion between "VmwAROS" and "VmwAROS LIVE!", the live-cd installable version.

Starting from today, VmwAROS will be the name of the whole project, while VmwAROS VE will be the already pre-configured environment for VMware, and VmwAROS LIVE! its bootable and installable version, which runs on real hardware. For this reason, the old subdomain vm.vmwaros.org has been turned to ve.vmwaros.org. The old subdomain will be still active for a while. If you have links on your website, please update them. Thank you.
