Linux "The Free Standards Group will unveil Linux Standard Base 3.1, the first LSB version to include explicit Linux desktop application support, April 25 at the Desktop Linux Summit in San Diego. The standard has already been endorsed by Linux leaders Red Hat and Novell, along with other major Linux players such as AMD, Asianux, CA, Dell, HP, IBM, Intel, Mandriva, RealNetworks, Red Flag, and Turbolinux, according to the FSG."

Now that we have both QT and GTK libraries, all we need is for the LSB to include a package type to standardize on. Like RPM.

RPM is the packaging standard for LSB...

Which makes Shuttlesworth's and other's statements about LSB compliance being very important "funny" at best. Especially since their distributions are based around dpkg.

And once they do that they can also propose that the only standard archive format is tar.gz and outlaw zip, rar, tar.bz2 and so on.

Perhaps you meant to say that "the location and organization of meta information about the package management" should be standardized.
