Linux Core Consortium Formed to Strengthen Linux Standardization Efforts

The Linux Core Consortium (LCC) has been formed by Linux vendors from Europe, Asia, and North and South America to create a common core implementation of the Linux Standard Base (LSB) 2.0. This implementation will serve as the core for each company's future Linux distribution products. The consortium aims to boost industry-wide standardization efforts and strengthen the position of the LSB as an open de facto standard for Linux distributions. It will also simplify ISV/IHV certifications on Linux by providing an industry-supported LSB reference implementation, spurring a stronger LSB certification program for ISVs/IHVs. The partnership is an open development effort and other interested Linux companies are encouraged to join. Open source developers will also be welcome to join this development effort.
