LSB Developer Network: An MSDN for Linux
FSG and O'Reilly Media are teaming to offer an online resource for Linux developers similar to the Microsoft Software Developer Network. (Linux-Watch)One major advantage Microsoft developers have over their Linux counterparts is that they have access to MSDN (Microsoft Software Developer Network), a magnificent online developer resource. Linux has had nothing to compare. Until now. The FSG (Free Standards Group), a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing and promoting open-source software standards, announced Oct. 17 that it has partnered with OReilly Media to offer similar services to Linux application developers as part of its LSB (Linux Standard Base) Developer Network.
The LDN (LSB Developer Network) is meant to serve as the central, community-based source of information for software developers writing portable Linux applications.
