Linux in 2004

December 23rd, 2004

With the year drawing to a close, we can expect many more such ’round up of the year gone by’ articles. Here’s one by Phil Hochmuth. Pretty ho-hum article if you ask me, certainly not eliciting the ‘eye-popping, head-scratching and, sometimes, fist-pounding reaction’ that Mr. Hochmuth is expecting of me.

But I have to say something about this:

Linux Standards Base 2.0 emerges … With the disappearance of the United Linux effort, LSB proved to be the real force for preventing Linux fragmentation.

Huh?

The ‘huh’ not for the fragmentation part; ‘huh’ for the role of LSB in preventing that part.
