CA throws its weight behind Linux standard

Filed under
Linux

The newly revamped Linux Standards Base has got three new supporters this week.

Enterprise software vendor Computer Associates (CA) has backed the body behind the main cross-vendor Linux standardisation project in a move described by the body's chief as giving the effort "critical mass".

CA was the largest name of three companies who signed their names to the Free Standards Group's (FSG) membership roll this week, the others being Japanese systems integrator NTT Data and US-based Open Country, which sells Linux systems management tools.

The three will join existing members HP, IBM, Sun, AMD and Intel, as well as all of the major Linux vendors and other recently-joined members: Veritas, MySQL and Levanta.

The additional membership comes as the FSG this week released the latest version of its flagship Linux Standard Base (LSB) specification. The standard — which all the major Linux vendors adhere to — is the main technical assurance that software will run across different Linux distributions.
