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's time for a little preview of the incoming Icaros Desktop v1.1.6, which includes also version 1.6 of the AmiBridge scripts, which currently allow launching AmigaOS Workbench applications straight from the AROS side. The next version, however, will also add support to ADF files, which means that Icaros users will also run classic Amiga games and demos from their AROS computers. AmiBridge 1.6 will support sound and games on multiple disks (up to 4 ADF files), but obviously it will need original Amiga ROMs and software (the best way to get 'em all is buying Amiga Forever from Cloanto. And it's incredibly cheap). This video shows how it will work...
