About the Linux Standard Base (LSB)
The Linux Standard Base delivers interoperability between applications
and the Linux operating system. Currently all major distributions comply
with the LSB and many major application vendors, like MySQL,
RealNetworks and SAP, are certifying. The LSB offers a cost-effective
way for application vendors to target multiple Linux distributions while
building only one software package. For end-users, the LSB and its mark
of interoperability preserves choice by allowing them to select the
applications and distributions they want while avoiding vendor lock-in.
LSB certification of distributions results in more applications being
ported to Linux and ensures that distribution vendors are compatible
with those applications. In short, the LSB ensures Linux does not fragment.
If you are an end user looking for Linux distributions that support open
standards, please see our list of LSB certified products
If you are a developer looking to build portable Linux applications that
will work on these distributions, please see the Linux Developer Network
