Congrats Paolone and a very happy birthday to Icaros Desktop!

If it wasn't for the release of Icaros Desktop 2.0 a few years ago I would have remained completely unaware of AROS, and the fact that the Amiga scene still exists!

Thanks to that discovery I've launched back into the world of Amiga after a 20+ year absence. The old A500 has come out of the roof, a Vampirised A2000 now sits on my desk and a dedicated AROS machine (running Icaros) is hooked up beneath.

It's already been a lot of fun, a lot of hours, and if my wife sees this post she may want to have stern words with you ;)

Thanks again to you and the whole team who make it possible.

Thanks for that, I have a whole stack of Dell laptops where I can't get the sound working so this will be worth a shot.

Thanks for the great video Steve. I'm always envious of your AROS and AOS setups, they always look good and everything seems to work nicely. Seeing vids like this inspires me to spend more time with AROS and see if I can achieve something similar.

I appreciate the candid support you give to AROS as I feel much the same way about it. I really hope it can achieve synergy with the Apollo core (as well as x64) as this would complete the re-birth of the platform and give it the best chance of a future.

I lack the time and skills to contribute code ATM but in lieu of this will continue contributing a few gold pieces where I can afford it.

I'd love to be able to help but I can't see myself having enough time in the near future. I hope you can find a willing taker as it's a very handsome website.

I don't know how WannaCrypt and Petya works.. can I use SMBv1 safely if I use a router to connect to internet?


I would say no, as there is always a risk, especially now that the exploit is in the wild and Petya apparently employed more than just the one used by Wannacrypt. I guess it depends of whether you're happy to take that risk.

Best not to take my advice anyway, my wife's laptop still runs XP :).

Yes SMB v1 was turned off by default in the March security update for Windows systems. WannaCrypt and Petya both exploit SMBv1 so it should remain turned off.

FWIW SMB file transfer with a *nix host (Free BSD 10) is also about the same speed. I don't know which version it's using..

AROS fills a niche of sorts in that it is the only open-source Amiga OS replacement and also the only one that runs natively on x86, as well as m68k.

As for its practical use, sure the *nixes will do most things better for the same low price, but for my money they aren't half as fun.

Funny you should mention the case, it also makes a cameo appearance here at 3:00 (not my one of course) => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_zegFb_fkA

@sabbate
I've also had problems with Janus-UAE and never really had it running well. It's a shame but I'm hopeful one of us will be able to sort out the issues in time.

nice :) , you run Icaros on pentium III ?


Nah, it's just the case. Inside is a Core 2 Duo board I found on the street that happens to work really well with AROS. I'd like something that looks more Amiga-like but there doesn't seem to be anything on the market.

I am thinking of investing in a new set of Amiga-style keycaps though..

My AROS PC is an old beige case I bought in about 1998. It's not pretty but I like it. It fits a full ATX board and is smaller than a Fractal mini.

It runs native Icaros 2.2 which I'm having a lot of fun with, but sometimes it works so well that I forget what I'm using. So far I've just done some regular PC-type stuff including web, YouTube (!!), finding directions (Mapparium) and copying files from server to MP3 player. I need to explorer this OS more, play mods and also get creative.

I was toying with the idea of running simultaneous hosted and 68k environments on Linux, but lately real life (tm) has put a stop to this project.
