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.

Editor Rohan Pearce has published a great article about Icaros Desktop on Computerworld Techworld, a great IT-based website in Australia. Rohan sent me many questions about our distribution, and wrote a little essay which is half a overview, half a interview to me: a perfect introduction to Icaros Desktop for people who hasn't ever heard about it, and a nice read for anyone already involved in the Amiga odyssey. The best I can do here is just saying "thank you" to Rohan, and link both addresses you may use to read "How Icaros Desktop brings the Amiga experience to x86 PCs". Here, and here.

UPDATE: and we've even hit Slashdot!

After two days, this is still the most read story on Computerworld. Who said the Amiga would no more interest anyone?
