    Post New Standards for Linux

    The Free Standards Group has announced that they will make a standard API for Linux, making it easier to run applications across different versions of Linux! The FSG consists of members like IBM, COMPAQ, DELL, Oracle, RedHat and SuSE.

    Those are mighty good news. I was a little worried when i found out Red-Hat included a not yet released (modified?) version of the C-compiler GCC in RH7.2. It seemed to me they were on their way to create their very own version of Linux. But now I realise they're not!

    It's important that the different distros pull in the same direction, that's the only way to increase Linux' market-shares.

    Thumbs up

    This is an excellent move on behalf of all the Linux manufacturers, but I can only see it going so far because each distributer is going to try to keep / increase their own market share. But it is a good move, at the very least it should lead to more competition it the Linux world.
