I suppose I was wondering about it being in Redmond. Seems the founder *did* work for Microsoft and changed the name to Lycoris to get out from under that connotation. The thing looks attractive enough, and the Wal-Mart box is cheap enough, still I'd like to hear from someone who's actually tried it.
From the Lycoris website:
Joseph Cheek's highly technical background has allowed him to work for companies such as Linuxcare (as a Senior Linux Consultant) and Microsoft (as a network and systems tester). He co-authored the book "Integrating Your Network with Caldera OpenLinux 2.3", was a Technical Contributor to Microsoft's Windows 98 Resource Kit, and writes a monthly Linux column for Computer Source Magazine. As an entrepreneur Joseph has worked as a freelance computer network consultant in both the Novell NetWare and Linux spaces.
I can hardly blame him for staying in Redmond, I love the Pac NW, lived there for four years (ok the south end of the Pac NW, Humboldt County, CA). I'd like to go back...
