    FSG made Linux Standard Base (LSB) 2.0 available earlier this week. The standard aims to make it easier for software developers to ensure their applications will run on different Linux distributions. The new version supports C++, which should attract more developers. It also supports 32 and 64-bit architectures. The standard is being supported by most major Linux vendors including AMD, Dell, HP, IBM, Intel, Novell, Red Hat, Turbolinux and others. This support should help prevent Linux fragmenting into lots of different, and incompatible, systems.
