First update to Icaros Desktop 2.2 is now available on Icaros website! This is a bugfix release which does not add new features or programs to the distribution, but it refreshes AROS system files and corrects many bugs reported here on AROS-EXEC (and elsewhere...).

These include:

- removed duplicated FinalWriter demo from Utilities
- removed duplicated MESA demos from Extras/Demos
- removed other duplicated files here and there
- replaced make with AROS one, now it should find makefiles as expected
- Aminet's version of make moved to Storage
- replaced ata.device with better working one
- replaced most AROS system files with newer components
- added alternative ATA device to advanced boot options
- removed faulty rtl8168 network device
- updated AROS 68K ROMs for playing games and demos
- started updating italian catalogs, starting with Wanderer menus

I wonder where exactly do you see all this fighting for supremacy, I guess all the sane people still interested into Amiga stuff have now understood how much retro this platform is and how much it hits the mainstream computer market (zero). However, there are a few people and companies which still consider this "sell me hundreds" kind-of niche a market, and make considerably ridiculous statements about 'competition', 'supremacy', sometimes acting with very silly and pathetic behaviors on forums, social networks and so on. So please ignore them and just enjoy the very little this community can produce. All people here are perfectly aware of the fact that any enhancement to the old 68K platform will be of interest/amusement for a very little niche, and it won't restart anything, nor it will bring back Amiga computer from the grave the market has already buried them in. We're still writing/enhancing AROS mainly for fun, don't forget that.

When I first heard about SMP being added to x64, I wondered if it could benefit also possible 'experimental' architectures like, for instance, a custom version of UAE using 2 or more 68K cores. The Vampire team is now achieving a series of technological developments over the original M68K architectures that AROS can support with the right code.

Now I SINCERELY hope that all those amiga-naysayers who never understood the importance of having a free, independent, easily-customizable AmigaOS re-implementation will finally find their answer. Vampire team is evolving the Amiga platform. AROS is evolving the Amiga platform. The others just sell old code (sometimes they even not developed). And that's all.

@Amiga

Take them from the latest M68K AROS builds, even though ABIv1, they will work on AROS x86/ABIv0 as well.

Yep. However, we should now help him consolidating his situation, so don't forget to pledge him some money on a monthly basis.

He has a page on Patreon, please use it.

Amazing. Is there something I may do to help you with your OWB issue? How can I check it on Icaros?
