Four new versions of Linux have been certified to comply with guidelines set down by the Linux Standard Base, a group trying to make it easier for software to run on different companies' versions of the Unix clone.
Red Hat 8, SuSE 8.1, SCO Group OpenLinux 3.1.1 and MandrakeSoft 9 ProSuite all comply with the LSB's guidelines, according to the Free Standards Group, which oversees the LSB certification process.
That reminds me of a question that I have been meaning to ask:
It says that the Mandrake 9 ProSuite is certified. Is this because that is the version that Mandrakesoft submitted? Or, is this the only Mandrake 9 version that complies (meaning that the downloadable version is standards compliant)? Just a small, silly question.
