È arrivato Icaros Desktop 2.2!!

Ci siamo! Finalmente dopo la versione preview pubblicata lo scorso Dicembre, Icaros Desktop 2.2 è stato rilasciato ed è disponibile per il download. Icaros Desktop 2.2  è un ambiente Desktop preconfigurato per PC. L’AROS (Research Operating System) è un sistema operativo desktop efficiente e leggero, compatibile con AmigaOS 3.1.

Completamente rivista l’interfaccia grafica con un look nuovo che mescola un grigio in stile Workbench 2.0 ai colori di AROS nightly build (usata nell’anteprima di Natale). Icaros Desktop 2.2 ha decisamente molte funzionalità interessanti come l’HostBridge con il quale è possibile eseguire applicazioni host per Winows e Linux direttamente da AROS. In poche parole, se si sta eseguendo Icaros Desktop 2.2 su Windows o Linux, ora è possibile avviare programmi comuni (come MS Office, Photoshop, GIMP, Inkscape e altri) dal nostro caro AROS, interessante vero?


Inoltre i programmi presenti nelle vecchia pre-release, sono stati aggiornati e posizionati in maniera migliore. Inoltre sono stati aggiunti altri programmi, come l’interessantissimo ZunePaint.


Ecco di seguito in dettaglio tutte le novità riportate dal sito ufficiale:
