– Easy to use graphical work environment with consistent, simple but powerful interface. Text console emulation is available as extra within the graphical environment.
– High response speed to user input, even under load.
– Fast start-up (under ten seconds on modern computers) and shut-down (around five seconds).
– Based on the AtheOS operating system. Modular. Multi-user. Memory protection. Pre-emptive. Kernel threading. Excellent support for SMP and multi-core systems. Originally inspired by AmigaOS.

– Runs on Intel-compatible PCs in 32-bits mode.
– Minimum requirements are a Pentium processor and 32 MB memory. (To use the web browser you need some more memory, and 64 MB is needed for the Live CD).
– Base installation takes around 250 MB disk space, including a collection of applications.
