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.

We would like to thank PC Professionale for having included Icaros Desktop Live! on the covermounted DVD-ROM of its february issue. It is one of the most ancient and well known magazines in Italy, and we are extremely proud and excited to be there. News about the covermount appeared also on Amiga-related sites in Italy. It's not the first time PC Professionale talks about Icaros (a news about release 1.2 was published here, while an english robo-translation can be found here).
