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.

Time for a little, sad news. Download for version 1.3.3 of Icaros Desktop has been temporarily suspended, due to a bug found in InstallAROS after the release. Some users reported issues installing Icaros Desktop on a two-partition configuration (AROS: for system and Work: for... well... work!). To fix this, we decided to reintragrate the older version of InstallAROS, which doesn't support installing from a twice-partitioned pendrive, but at least it doesn't give problems during installation. Downloads will be restored as soon as the new version has been uploaded to the main server. If you have already downloaded version 1.3.3, you don't need to download again, unless you have to install it in two partitions. A workaround for this, however, has been found here.
