Icaros desktop is X86 only, not running on ARM devices

the only ARM based distribution i am aware of is Aeros

http://www.aeros-os.org/

I think there are even special raspberry versions

News close beta 1.3 release

Right now around 4200 GB and 1800 GBC roms are detected including some public domain related stuff
Added Genesis/Mega Drive support for EmuLa, the current database recognizes the following :
- Game Boy : 8773 roms + some demos & pd
- Game Boy Color : 3971 roms + some demos & pd
- Game Boy Advance : 641 roms
- NES : 7646 roms
- Genesis / Mega Drive : 2917 roms

On Windows Genesis is handled by Fusion, since I'd like to add support for AROS I was wondering if there is a good Mega Drive emulator around, I've tried DGen from AROS-Archives but it have some problems loading roms from the command line.
There is also Genesis Plus but from the readme seems it is missing sound.

Icaros Desktop 2.1.1




The second update pack for Icaros Desktop 2.1 has been released. For the first time in the x86 land, an AROS distribution supports Windows 7 (Vista/2008 and upwards) shared folders through SMB handler, but that's not the only big news in the "networking drives department": we also included Norbert Kett's handler for DropBox and a client for AmiCloud and the IndieGO! e-shop. Users of Amiga productivity applications will enjoy the refresh of AROS M68K system files, with a new, faster RTG driver. Last but not least, we also added Mapparium 0.4 to our distribution.

More information and screenshots at
http://vmwaros.blogspot.it/2016/06/s...ktop-v212.html

New from Icaros Desktop 2.1.1
- Added DropBox cloud drive handler
+ Added easy DropBox configuration to Prefs
+ "Gdrive" has now been replaced by Prefs/CludDrives
- Added AmiCloud client to extras/FileSystem
- Updated SMB handler, now supporting shared folders from
+ Windows 2008 Server/R2
+ Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10
- Updated AROS M68K environment
+ New RTG driver with enhanced performance
+ ROMs and system files updated to June 2016
- Added Mapparium to applications
- Updated SQLman in applications
- Updated IndieGO! e-shop client
- Updated FlexCat

AROS intrigues me, since it's the only x86 Amiga-like OS, and it's also open source.

However its limited hardware support means I haven't built a dedicated box for it yet, just running it in a VM. It feels a bit silly having to shop for 2005-2008 era components in order to run a "Next-gen" OS. Also I'm no fan of the default color/window theme, but if you switch to something a bit more sane it actually doesn't look bad.

Nice "wanna be windows" desktop. No wonder why people haven't found AROS.

Well this is not so, if supported, ICAROS can natively install on even newer PC, Also an installation on Pen Drive you can, but it is best to use an external hard drive, in this way you can start ICAROS on every PC we want.

I am attaching some interesting old videos:

Did you know that on EROS and can emulate all the old Commodore and Amiga platforms and more, with both emulators native AROS or through an interpreter as Wine on Linux?

Icaros Desktop from RAM Drive (Windows)

Verifica teorica - this video shows a Icaros Desktop virtual machine running from a Windows RAM Drive (yes, there are RAM drives for Windows too...). AROS applications start blazingly fast, even heavier ones like OWB and AmiBridge. How fast would AROS run, in general, if the whole filesystem could be moved to RAM (By Paolone autor Distro IcarOS)
