Lsb???


I was viewing an article about Linux Standard Base 2.0 and how it makes all applications compatable with all the different Linux Distros. If this is the case, then how come programs like Limewire and America's Army are offered in 1 file and I have yet to have a problem installing these under any distro. Is it because they comply with LSB??? Just wondering

I dunno, maybe the people who haven't written programs for Linux just don't know how to do it right or something. A couple more that install under any distro are OpenOffice, SOT Office, Crossover Office and Amsn. It probably has something to do with the kinds of programs big corporations use or something. Who knows.

it looks like redhat's the big one to do it. it's not like slackware or any of those distros are gonna go along. i don't even understand what they're doing. i think people who don't understand linux just complain about something they don't get, and the distro companies try responding by "standardizing". hell, i can use linux apps on FreeBSD, it surprised me that there's supposedly an issue where linux needs to be "standardized".

there's other things that need to (but probably shouldn't) be done if you're gonna compete with microsoft. "standardizing" linux distros isn't gonna do anything.
