    and i quote:

    "This is huge news for Linux users. They can now be sure that applications will work on any Linux distro -- from Red Flag in China, to Conectiva in Brazil, Red Hat in US and SuSE in Europe," Zemlin told ZDNet UK."

    @imdeemvp, so your an expert now?
    I think there is a lot of hype behinds this. the users won't see any benefits for a while (at least a year) because it requires all the developers to actually implement it. I will believe them when I can use rpms built for mandrake and suse without problems. I think the benefits are mostly for programers

    if all linux distros follow the "Standard" it could mean more compatability of software across all distros
    I guess it will give retail software the incentive to start producing linux software?

    As far as I am concerned its all lies until Distro transparency actually appears (I agree with Superb) and more importantly I am able to mix source and rpm with no problems...
