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.

It has not been easy and it took more time than it was planned. When everything seemed ok, issues arised so hard and finally, when it was time to transfer VmwAROS files and burn 'em into a glazing ISO image... we got stuck again. And then, when the 0.9 release was finished, I got report that the Icon menu in Wanderer didn't work! But, luckily, the wait is over: a new incredible release of VmwAROS is here and, due to the amount of software included, it has turned from a CD to a DVD release! Yes, you'll need a DVD drive to enjoy it.
