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: rajan r and X

Well, most people see Xfree86 and think that is X. It isn't until one uses a commercial X, when the tune starts to change.

For example, SGI IRIX uses X, and people don't complain about the performance. Regarding Linux/FreeBSD, if it is so bad, why not go out and buy AccelerateX? heck, you've got the OS for free, why not spend a few dollars and get really good performance by using a commercial X server with optimised drivers.
