I got this via /. I don't make a habit of ripping their topics, but I just find this so strange. Lycoris (formally Redmond Linux) is a Linux distribution that is designed to be easy to install and use. I have read a lot of good things about Lycoris, many say it is a very good transition disto.
Okay, the kicker... The article is at MSNBC.com. Huh?
Now, however, there's a Linux that's as mindless to install as Microsoft's Windows.
[The install program] asked me to confirm the monitor's screen resolution and asked where I wanted to install the OS.
If you've been waiting to try Linux this is a great way to start. If you're already a Linux fan, this is the perfect way to persuade a reluctant friend or relative. They can install it themselves and may just fall in love with an ever-easier-to-use operating system.
It's not just the fact that an article promoting a competing desktop O/S shows up on MSNBC, but it also takes a shot here and there at Windows. Must be a newbie reporter getting carried away with the journalistic integrity thing ...
All that aside, it looks like an interesting distro.
