In reading the newer announcements from today, it seems they will adhere
to the LSB definitions. I realize that it isn't a product cert, like
RHCE, but the standards cert, and this is what I was fearful of. Upon
further readings today, they say that all will have the same kernel,
etc, and a lot of independent vendors are backing this, i.e. IBM,
Oricle, etc..
