  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
