"In a move to encourage the worldwide adoption of the open-source model, the Linux Internationalization Initiative, also known as Li18nux, Wednesday announced the availability of the latest software specification designed to increase the functionality of commercial Unix systems in the global market."

"Formed in August of 1999, Li18nux consists of Linux and open source-related contributors who develop software and applications for Linux and other open-source projects, focusing on portability with an international bent."

"The group's Wednesday release of the Li18nux2000 globalization specification appears as the organization's latest move toward making Linux available under various national and local requirements. By conforming to the specification, application programmers can take advantage of Unicode-based multilingual functions across Linux distributions and Unix systems, the group claims."
