Redmond, WA -- In response to the needs of its customers,
Lycoris has begun distribution in the retail space. Their flagship
products, Desktop/LX Personal and Desktop/LX Deluxe, are now
available at Fry's Electronics retailers. Desktop/LX has also
enjoyed continued publicity with reviews in Forbes, The Washington
Post and Personal Computer World among others. The next few months
promise to be exciting, as Lycoris prepares to release Update 2 for
its popular operating system and launch its ProductivityPak, a full
office suite based on Open Office.
The increasing sales of Desktop/LX have prompted Lycoris to
bring on more staff to accommodate demand for fulfillment.
Desktop/LX sales have already outpaced the cumulative first quarter
numbers in the first two months of the second quarter.
"We are thrilled with the wide acceptance of Desktop/LX and with
the reviews we have recently received. As we prepare for the
release of Update 2, our next version of Desktop/LX, as well as our
Productivity Pak, we will continue to make Linux easier, more
usable, and more accessible for regular people. We see the launch
of our retail channel as the next step in that progression," states
CTO and Founder, Joseph Cheek.
As more end users make Desktop/LX their choice for desktop
operating system, the Desktop/LX community grows in parallel.
Lycoris has also had to increase the capacity and bandwidth for its
Community Website, lycoris.org to accommodate for more Desktop/LX
With an eye on the future, Lycoris sees retail distribution as a
key to wider acceptance of Desktop/LX as the new choice of desktop
operating system. To that end, Lycoris has secured the first retail
outlet to carry Desktop/LX, Fry's Electronics. With six stores in
Northern California and seven stores in Southern California, four
stores in Texas, two stores in Arizona, and one store in Oregon,
coupled with a dedicated technology market focus, Fry's is a
perfect match for Lycoris as it starts its retail exposure.
