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.

Lunar: With Mac OS X Quartz, you can also have a rootless X server to keep the compatibility with X apps, anyway.

With extreemely slow speeds, yeah.

But you haven't gave a compeling reason to move away from X11.

Anyway, I don't agree with limiting competition. If GNOME isns't around, I doubt kde-usablity mailing list would be around, nor would KDE would be where it is right now. Friendly competition helps. It also helps to have compatiblity between projects heading for the same target audience, something both KDE and GNOME is working on.
