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.
