Linux-FT joins X/Open
This is a *MAJOR* and long overdue step forward for Linux.
The group developing Linux-FT have joined X/Open, the international open
systems standards organization wich manages the Single UNIX Specification
and licenses the UNIX trademark.
"Independant Software Vendors are often nervous about porting their
products to Linux due to the perceived lack of standardisation and
concerns about support and stability. X/Open membership demonstrates a
commitment to Conformance, Standards and Stability which has been
unachievable in the past and is a significant step towards proving
that Linux is a viable and stable platform.
With Linux-FT's proven commitment to Commercial Quality, Standards
and Conformance, X/Open membership is a logical step forward in
this definitive products growth and provides the Commercial
and Free communities with a solid platform on which to base their
says Lynda Nurden of Lasermoon Ltd.
"Having a part of the Free Software community as an X/Open ISV
Council member is an important step towards the worldwide acceptance
of UNIX systems standards.
We welcome this development and wish this new Member every sucess."
says Graham Bird of X/Open.
