Linux Standard Base (LSB) and Li18nux provide common ground for Linux worldwide

The Free Standards Group has released LSB 1.1 and Li18nux 1.0, two important standards for Linux. LSB 1.1 provides a set of agreed-upon standards that will allow Linux distributions and developers of Linux-based applications to work together seamlessly, decreasing development costs while allowing them to concentrate on adding capabilities to Linux. Li18nux is an internationalization guide for platform and applications developers, allowing Linux and Linux-based programs to reach greater localization capabilities and obtain global reach. With LSB 1.1 and Li18nux 1.0's full complement standards and testing capabilities, the Free Standards Group has created indispensable tools for Linux.
