Editorial About Lycoris on a Blog Entry

Lycoris does what I mentioned a few days ago on this site. It lets a person sit down and gets some work done without ever needing to crack the hood. Mandrake, Red Hat, and many other Linux versions are equivalent to buying a kit full of parts and tools and building your own car. Lycoris is like going to the dealership, plunking down the cash, and driving away. […] Lindows offers the same thing. But Lindows costs $129, rather than $29. And Lindows requires a yearly subscription plan of $99 a year. Whereas the Lycoris plan is included in the one time purchase price. And Lindows is proprietary, you cannot download it for free. Xandros also claims to be aimed at the windows user. But Xandros costs $99 and is proprietary. You can’t get it for free either. So much for choice. Lycoris is now running on both my systems.” Read the blog entry at TheForge, by Barry Smith.
