Icaros Desktop 2.0 is here. Hell yeah!

Wow! A brand new release of Icaros Desktop is available for download. And I am downloading it just now…

I am truly amazed by dedication and craftsmanship of all the hackers involved in that project, including AROS team of course. This is not another GNU/Linux distro and they cannot rely on the shoulders of giants so much.

Sure, it is not an OS for everyone. It can not compete with leaders of the desktop world. Most likely it won’t be your desktop of choice either. But if you want to try something else, have a breath of fresh air, go for it.

Once I have it installed (running as a VM for now) I’ll share some impressions on how it feels and tastes.

    • Looking forward to try it myself. I set up AROS on an old PC I had a while ago and it gave it new life. The computer suddenly became very, very fast. Do you feel like Icaros gives you the Amiga “feeling” if you know what I mean?

      • I am still playing with it. To some extent I do feel like in the old days… From time to time something crashes really bad and I see that hated “Software Failure!” window with those “Suspend”, “Reboot”, “Power off” buttons… :-D
