Linux Standard Base 1.1

Aglanor Re:Distros are in but... (162 comments)

I really don't get it... IIRC the linux standards guy was sometime ago here on /. bitching and quarreling with Free Sofware advocates because you all complained that having to pay to get a vote was agains the principles of Free Software. Now I see "ooohs" and "aahs", why?

Why in hell do we need standards based on what paying corporations say? Isn't it the whole point of Free Software, not depending on corporations?

LSB "may?" be useful, but surely is annoying. And I don't think we really need it. We develop by darwinistic evolution of code, and not by commitee!
