Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris A few months ago we wrote a full review of the Lycoris Desktop/LX operating system, but many releases happened since then and some things have changed. The Lycoris folks sent us the latest official version (+ online patches), we tested it, and here is what we think about it.

it's beautiful

It's amazing to see all the Linux distros coming into bloom.

The fact that they all seem to offer something interesting, one way or another, is a blessing for the Linux community.

For the same reason that Todd Hoff wants to switch to Mac, I hope many users switch from Windows to whatever flavor of Linux they like best --

I'm a Windows-only user and I plan to switch to the Mac on my next purchase because of XP's DRM approach. Using XP would be like voluntarily entering a jail cell and closing the door.

And the Microsoft DRM in Windows XP is a teddy bear compared to what their BigBrotherInside OS is going to look like in the future.

Voting for freedom is switching from Windows to either Linux or Mac.
