Linux Foundation Certifies All Commercial Linux Distributions
The Linux Foundation announced this week that all of the leading commercial Linux companies are certified to Linux Standard Base 4.0, including Canonical, Kylin, Mandriva, Neshine, Novell, Oracle and Red Hat.
"The LSB delivers interoperability between applications and the Linux operating system, allowing application developers to target multiple versions of Linux with just one software package," the announcement said. "It also allows Linux vendors to demonstrate to their customers that they meet a common set of industry standards and that they work together as an industry on advancing Linux."
Jim Zemlin, the executive director at The Linux Foundation said, "This is good for the Linux community, good for Linux customers and good for Linux vendors."
