Post Help to understand the concept of LSB


Would you guys agree with the following statement? (If not, would you be as kind as to explain why? I am still having kind of a hard time trying to understand this concept):
Quote:
A LSB-compliant program should integrate flawlessly with any LSB-compliant distro, now and in the future.
Thanks in advance.

That is an agreed-upon rule of the Linux Standard Base, yes. And I don't see much to explain about it.

The single sentence really says it all.

If you'd like to make a program that is LSB compatible, they'd like you to thoroughly understand the LSB, write your program accordingly, and keep it up to date as the LSB changes.

Thanks a lot! Just added to your rep.
