Linux: New Industry Consortium Rallies Around Linux Standard Base

"Four international Linux powers are forming a new Linux consortium to create a common core implementation of the Linux Standard Base 2.0.

The Linux Core Consortium, or LCC, is expected to make its debut on Wednesday. The group is made up of four companies: Brazil's Conectiva SA, France's Mandrakesoft SA, Japan's Turbolinux Inc. and the United States' Progeny Linux Systems Inc. The new LSB 2.0-based implementation will serve as the core for each company's future Linux distribution products: Conectiva Enterprise Server, Mandrakesoft Corporate Server, Turbolinux Enterprise Server and Progeny Componentized Linux.

Like the now-defunct UnitedLinux, the LCC seeks to create a standardized Linux that will make it easier for ISVs and OEMs to support Linux with their products. Conectiva and Turbolinux were both members of the earlier organization. The LCC plans to make Linux more attractive to developers and vendors by simplifying ISV/OEM certifications on Linux by providing an industry-supported LSB reference implementation."
