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.

VmwAROS LIVE! is a complete distribution of the AROS desktop operating system. Based on the VmwAROS technologies, VmwAROS LIVE! includes the classic VmwAROS environment, on a bootable live DVD-ROM which runs directly on your hardware (it must be already supported by AROS). VmwAROS LIVE! can be installed on the hard drive and can coexist with Microsoft Windows XP, in a dedicated partition. A quick reference guide and some AROS PDF manuals are included.

After downloading, please consider donating. Every release of VmwAROS requires a lot of time and work, for a hobbyst project. Donations will be spent to enhance VmwAROS and to contribute to AROS bounties.
