Grown-up installed to salvage Linux Standards Base

Author: JT Smith

Linux Gram got the scoop on this one: "The Free Standards Group, the entity responsible for the Linux Standard Base (LSB), is about to get adult supervision. LSB, the vaunted
attempt to standardize Linux and ward off that old bugaboo, fragmentation, has spent most of its time twisted up in its own laundry. Now it's
about to get some industry backing from the likes of the old-line Unix guard compliments of the Free Standards Group's new unannounced
executive director, VA Linux loaner Scott McNeil, who will translate commercial necessities into terms the free-thinking open source
developers can understand and mediate between the open source community and commercial interests."
