"Two Linux standards groups Monday said they have joined together to form the Free Standards Group, which will develop a single set of standards for the open-source operating system."

"The new organization combines two informal groups, the Linux Standard Base project and the Linux Internationalization Initiative, into a nonprofit corporation, allowing them to attract financing. Dan Quinlan, who headed the Linux Standard Base project, will chair the new organization."

"Quinlan said the group will focus initially on delivering Version 1.0 of the Linux Standard Base, a specification that software developers will be able to use as an application development guide. Applications that comply with the specification will run on any Linux version that also supports the standard without having to be recompiled, he said."
