"Lycoris Desktop/LX is a distribution of Linux aimed firmly at desktop users, especially those migrating from Windows to Linux for the first time. The distribution fits on a single CD and includes all of the basic applica-tions needed for day-to-day desktop use.
Installing Desktop/LX is a straightfor--ward process. Novice users may encounter some trouble with the large number of questions posed by the installation wizard; however, the default values are sensible and the accompanying documentation provided by Lycoris is excellent. Lycoris does not allow the user to select the packages installed by the distribution, instead offering a one-size-fits-all model which is ideal if you're new to Linux. The installation took about 20 minutes and came in under 1.5GB of disk space.
Lycoris is based on the KDE desktop, which has been designed to be familiar to Windows users. All applications have been identified by their task rather than name under the Start button. The tweaks added by Lycoris to the KDE desktop are nice, although not revolutionary. Most other distributions such as Red Hat and Mandrake have made similar usability improvements."
