Linux road map needed

Author: JT Smith

From Nicholas Petreley, at ComputerWorld: "The [Linux Standards Base] moved at a glacial pace for years, but it recently picked up speed
when Scott McNeil took over the reins. Now executive director of the Free Standards Group, paid by IBM as an artist
in residence, McNeil is no stranger to Linux, having paid his dues as president of SuSE Linux and in various roles at VA
Linux.

McNeil knows that I had pretty much written off LSB as irrelevant, so he recently dragged me to a room full of
representatives from companies like Hewlett-Packard and Sun to convince me otherwise. I left both encouraged and
disappointed. "
