At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Jeff Gerhardt, Doc Searls (Linux Journal), Arne Flones and Russ Pavlicek; are back live tonight. We have a great show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!
Segment One- The News. We will cover THE HOT NEWS of the last few weeks tonight. The whole crew should be on line tonight. In particular, The Day They Stole the Internet possibly the most significant technology news of the year so far, the FCC over turns the 1996 Telecommunications Act. Also a review of the new Mozilla beta (finally with spam screening), News from The Desktop Linux Conference, and a harsh warning for Microsoft.........
Segment Two- Lycoris Desktop Linux-
Tonight on the show we will be joined by Jason Spisak from Lycoris. Back a month ago we were going to have both Lycoris and Lindows on the show to do a head to head evaluation of two very similar products. But, Lindows has gone back underground (chickens, bawk bawk) and will not be joining us tonight. Desktop LX but their new ProductivityPak that includes an office suite.
Complementing this new OS is the Lycoris ProductivityPak office suite, which is available at Walmart.com. This software package includes Lycoris Office, Lycoris PDASync Palm Pilot synchronization tool, and hundreds of labels and templates for 15 percent of the cost of Office XP. The ProductivityPak runs on Desktop/LX and provides read and write compatibility with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files, plus over twenty other formats.
NOTE: Unfortunatly as of show time we have still not gotten the new software for evaluation.
Jason has a background in the entertainment industry oddly enough, and uses his knowledge of marketing and aesthetic design to help Lycoris create and sell attractive, buyer-friendly products.
