DCC Alliance Leads Way to Linux Standard Base 3.0 Compliance

Filed under

The DCC Alliance formally released its first standards-based Debian core to serve as the foundation to its members Linux distributions this week.

The Alliance, formerly the Debian Common Core Alliance, is meant to promote the commercial adoption of Debian Linux. This new core, the DCC 3.0, is fully compliant with the LSB (Linux Standards Base) 3.0.

This, in turn, will make it easier for ISVs (independent software vendors) and IHVs (independent hardware vendors) to port their products to any DCC-based Linux that will run on all Linux distributions based on the DCC, as well as other LSB-compliant distributions.

Full Story.
