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.

Patched versions of Icaros Desktop 1.5 have been released. You can recognize them by the "-1" postfix in the end of archive names (for instance, IcarosLive_1_5_1-1.7z.exe). Patched version of Icaros Desktop won't corrupt FAT16-formatted USB pendrives and FAT12 floppies anymore. A updated version of the 1.5 > 1.5.1 update pack had already been released some hours before.


Users of Icaros 1.4.x who had already downloaded any 1.5.x version, but not installed it, please download again a patched version and use it instead of the old one.

Users of Icaros Desktop 1.5 who have not already installed any update to 1.5.1, please download the patched version of the 1.5 > 1.5.1 update pack and install it with LiveUpdater

Users of Icaros Desktop 1.5.1 (or 1.5 updated to 1.5.1), please download patch 01 and install it with LiveUpdater

Users of Icaros Desktop 1.5 LKE, please download the patch 01. It applies on 1.5, 1.5.1 and 1.5 LKE indifferently. Do NOT install update from 1.5 to 1.5.1, because newer system files can't apparently work with older ones.

All files are available in the Download section of the site.
