"Redmond Linux Corp. announced today that it will be
doing business as Lycoris. The name change is part of an ongoing
effort to gain independence and brand recognition in the growing
Linux software market. In addition, Lycoris' desktop operating
system, formally known as Redmond Linux Personal, is becoming
Desktop/LX. The company is setting the stage for a wider rage of
products and services that center around its flagship product.
"The Linux community, and desktop users in general, should have
packaged software choices that integrate into their work
environment. We are going to offer more than just a desktop
operating system. We needed a company name that reflects that.
Users are going to be able to buy packaged, easy to install
applications made by us specifically for the Desktop/LX platform,"
said Jason Spisak, who is on the Board of Advisors for Lycoris.
