I never installed Lycoris before. I decided to give it a try, although this will be a very first but fast look at this x86 distribution.
The version I tested is 1.4, code-named Amethyst: it is a free downloadable version of the retail release appeared in September. You can evaluate it for 45 days. After that you must purchase your copy from the Lycoris store. The software included in this ISO is all GPL'ed.
So, first of all, it is a commercial distribution, you must pay for it. My suggestion is to download this version and see if it does fit your needs: ease of use is assured.
