San Diego, Calif. – The Free Standards Group has announced the availability of the Linux Standard Base (LSB) 3.1, the first version of the LSB to include support for portable Linux desktop applications. This standard and newly enhanced developer support provided by the FSG will make it easier for application developers to target the complete Linux platform; thereby solving a major hindrance for Linux desktop adoption and providing a cohesive Linux desktop environment. LSB 3.1 also incorporates the recently approved ISO standard LSB Core (ISO/IEC 23360) into the standard. The Free Standards Group also has said that Red Hat, Novell, Ubuntu and others are all certifying their versions of their operating systems to the LSB, delivering true world-wide coverage of LSB certified distributions.
