Icaros Desktop VE (Virtual Environment) is a complete AROS desktop environment running on VMware virtual machines. Targeted to final users and to developers, Icaros Desktop VE allows testing and using the AROS Research Operating system without really installing it on the hard drive. It can be a reliable way to access this interesting OS for people with powerful, but yet not supported hardware.

After downloading, please consider donating. Every release of Icaros Desktop requires a lot of time and work, for a hobbyst project. Donations will be spent to enhance Icaros Desktop and to contribute to AROS bounties.
