Lycoris announces pre-sale of the ProductivityPak amd Desktop/LX InterConnect

Jason Spisak writes: Two highly anticipated products from Lycoris are now able for pre-purchase at a sale price from the Lycoris Store. The ProductivityPak office suite and Desktop/LX InterConnect operating system, which includes an office suite and legacy host connectivity. These new products are currently in their final Beta and represent the latest additions to the expanding Lycoris product line.

In the quest for strong software products provided at reasonable prices, Lycoris has created the ProductivityPak, which includes Lycoris Office, Lycoris PDASync Palm Pilot synchronization tool, and hundreds of labels and templates for 15% of the cost of Office XP. The ProductivityPak runs on Desktop/LX and is based on OpenOffice.org. It provides read and write compatibility with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files,plus over twenty other formats. The ProductivityPak also includes the Lycoris Artist, a vector and raster drawing program, as well as Lycoris WebWriter for creating and editing simple web pages in "what you see is what you get" (WYSIWYG) fashion.

"Desktop/LX users can buy six copies of the ProductivityPak for the price of a single copy of Office XP. That's not an exaggeration. For most office tasks, the level of functionality is identical, and we give them their money's worth," states Jason Spisak, Lycoris Marketing Director. "We include templates, labels, and you can export documents to the web. With the ProductivityPak, people have the functions they expect, packaged well, at a price they can afford. Its's another example of how Desktop/LX is definitely a less expensive platform."
