Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris As revealed yesterday, Mandriva today released a special version of its Mandriva One 2007 distribution, using the 'Metisse' 3D environment (which is actually not a 3D environment). "Metisse is a window manager developed by the In Situ project. Available under the General Public Licence exclusively for Linux, Metisse differs from a classic 3D desktop ('the cube') in the way that it offers innovative windows interactions, thus enforcing work efficiency."

And on Mandriva's metisse product page it states:

Available under the GPL Licence and in exclusivity for Mandriva Linux

GPL and exclusivity on some distro don't walk too well together:)

They probably mean that Mandriva Linux is the only to integrate that at the moment. Not that it will stay the only one in the futur.
