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
