A much needed project completed - well done all involved . If AROS keeps improving at this pace, by the end of 2012 I for one will be using it.

Looking at all the fixes to Wanderer, it for sure make AROS feel much more like an alternative to other Operative Systems.
Fantastic Job everyone involved.

If you haven't tried AROS in months or years, I'd urge you to wait for the next release of Icaros and then give it another go. I've manually patched up my install with the fixes and it feels transformed. You should also notice a big increase in stability from a year or so ago.

You might notice a few issues with the interface which I hope will be fixed in a future round of Paper Cuts. Wanderer lacks AppIcon support (so no iconification) and Tools menu support (I forget the proper name for this). Public Screen handling also needs a bit of love so they auto-open/close and the Zune settings work.

Everything else I'd expect as from an Amiga-like interface is now there.

Chris

Great work guys, I think the last few years aros really has changed from being a kind of like a beta OS to more of a complete OS, and I think it was about time to get them little annoyance to bed.

Sometime I think maybe os4 is not the way to go and aros is, I support both camps, and i've got my order in for the X1000 and I hope you guys out their do port aros to X1000.

The thing is when I stop to think about it and think that 2,000 could be invested in aros development and how much it could help aros efforts to move forward, well it just makes me think.

Aros has really turned the corner. I'm booting to Aros by default now on my netbook. I have Janus running in the background (with Amiga Forever of course) so all my old Amiga apps are integrated. I'm running OWB on it's own window so I just drag it out of the way or push it back to get to the desktop.. it's really amazing.

Really amazed by how AROS has moved forward in the last 12 - 24 months..

Thanks once more to all involved.

I urge all AmigaWorld readers to try out the latest Icaros Desktop and/or AspireOS releases!
