"Box sets of the Lycoris flagship product, Desktop/LX,
which was formally known as Redmond Linux Personal, are immediately
available from Lycoris and approved resellers worldwide.
As with all Lycoris products, Desktop/LX champions usability,
familiarity, and economy. Desktop/LX is now available in two box
packages, standard or deluxe. The standard box set includes the
Desktop/LX CD-ROM, a 30 page installation manual, and 60 days of
e-mail support directly from Lycoris. Desktop/LX Deluxe includes
everything in the standard package, plus 2 extra CD-ROMs, Source
Code and DevTools. These tools allow developers to use Desktop/LX
Deluxe as a development platform. Desktop/LX allows consumers to
have a full featured desktop for $29.95, and the Desktop/LX Deluxe
development set sells for $39.95.
According to Lycoris CTO and Founder, Joseph Cheek, Desktop/LX
is now a viable platform for Linux application develpment and
inclusion in OEM PC's.
"We now have a desktop operating system that's easy to use,
stable, and easy to update. It's an attactive platform for
application developers to work their magic and offer an alternative
on the desktop." says Cheek. "We will be leading the way in this
area by offering software packages tailored specifically for
Desktop/LX soon as well."
