Which distros are most Linux Standard Base (LSB) compliant?


Hello

Which distros are most Linux Standard Base (LSB) compliant? Are there enough LSB-complaint(ish) distros to make LSB a significant standard?

Best

If you have a look at the list of certified distros, you will see that all the major .rpm based commercial distros figure here. This at least makes it significant.

For it to change the game, I think you'd have to see Ubuntu appearing in that list, which at least means resolving the .deb vs .rpm packaging issue.
