Linux Adobe, IBM, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Novell, RealNetworks and Red Hat are all backing the new Linux standards effort led by the Free Standards Group. The nonprofit organisation plans to marshal their resources to form standards for key components of Linux desktop software, including libraries, application runtime and install time. The group said Monday that it will encourage software developers to use its guidelines when building programs for Linux as part of its Linux Standard Base project.

Good move and Ugh

This is definitely a good move. I look forward to the fruits of the work.

About Linux destroying the language....I think it was Curly Howard who complained about mangling the "Queens English" with the messing up of tense in the sentences. Remember Justin Wilson, the Cajun Chef? "Now, what I'm going to DID is....."

Of course, a minor spelling error has nothing to do with the English language, as that can happen in any language and the point of the person was clear as can be. But all that said, it's amazing to me how many articles get published on the web with bad spelling and improper usage of language!

If you have ever heard true Cajun dialect, you would understand that it is a mixture of French-English. Also South Louisiana is the only part of the USA where there is still spoken French natively.
