Desktop/LX Deluxe Garners Highly Commended Award from Personal Computer World

REDMOND, WA -- March 20th, 2003 -- Congratulations to the Lycoris Team for building a quality product that beat out many competitors in the field to receive the Highly Commended award from PCW Magazine. In a round up of eight Linux distributions and operating systems, Lycoris Desktop/LX shined through as the best OS for those people "new to Linux or indeed to computers." PCW gave Desktop/LX Deluxe a four out of five star overall rating and called the operating system "easy to install, accessible and well configured."

"The desktop is easy enough to use to make it a good replacement for anyone who doesn't necessarily want to run Linux, or even care about the operating system, but wants a stable, Internet-ready, virus-free PC," raves reviewer Barry Shilliday.

Again, congratulations to the Lycoris Team for their hard work and dedication to giving consumers an inexpensive, familiar and simple alternative.
