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.

Our friend Lorenzo Di Gaetano wrote a long and quite detailed article for the italian site GamesArk, analyzing and explaining the situation of the Amiga platform at the end of 2010. He defined AROS as the "most brilliant and flexible solution for a modern Amiga system", and also spent some good words about our distribution, Icaros Desktop (which I really appreciated, thank you!).
