Free Live Amiga OS for PCs
« on: November 02, 2012, 10:53:01 PM »
I'm on the On-Disk email newsletter - they are a Linux/software reseller.  Just saw this come through and thought I'd pass it along, they are giving away AROS on a 'live' DVD with any Linux/other purchase - here's the email as I received it - enjoy!


From the email:

Place any order this weekend and you can add the Icaros Desktop Live DVD to your order for free.

Icaros Desktop Live Free Order add-on

Remember the good ol' days of hanging out playing the latest games on the Amiga? Well, now you can relive those times and then some.

The AROS Operating System is compatible with AmigaOS, and runs on standard 32 or 64 bit PCs.  Icaros Desktop LIVE! is a complete distribution of the AROS desktop operating system. Icaros Desktop LIVE! comes on a bootable live DVD-ROM which runs directly on your hardware (it must be already supported by AROS). It can be installed on the hard drive.

Requirements: a x86-based computer with 500 MHz CPU; 256 MB system RAM; any PCI or AGP video card; fast DVD-ROM drive; 1 GB to 124 GB of free space on a EIDE hard drive (SATA support is limited); PS/2 mouse and keyboards recommended;

Recommended: a powerful processor, 512 MB of system RAM, an AROS compatible network and audio card. Please read the manual before installing.

Icaros Live also works under Windows and Linux in Virtualbox.

This offer is being extended to all Newsletter and opt-in update notifications, as well as facebook and twitter followers.

The first link is a badly designed web site with old information and nothing clearly visible to sell.  The second link is broken.  Why not just download and burn any of the many AROs Live distros for free?
