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.

Re: WinXP & DRM

"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."

I got my copy of XP w/SP1 slipstreamed from and as far as I can tell, DRM doesn't exist in my copy ;)

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

I've said it many times before .. be careful what you wish for. If you get too many people on the Linux platform and away from Windows, The Corporation will soon follow. After that, Linux will become exactly like Windows is now. Hell, based on some of the screenshots I've seen around here lately, it's already on its way ;)
