If I'm going to be jumping on standardization bandwagon I will need to
know how open LSB and linux foundation in general is to start coming up
with a standardization model where each of the linux standards out there
complement each other as opposed to compete against each other so we
dont wind up with scenarios like this [¹].
Starting with adjusting the LSB specification to make it GENIVI*®*
compliant so when you become LSB X.0 Certified you are also GENIVI
The reason for this is obvious the traditional desktop/server
distribution model as we come to know it through out the year are
seizing to exist so distributions will either adapt to the emerging
"smart" phone/tablet generation or risk becoming extinct in the process.
It's only a matter of time before Intel/Samsung <someone else> realize
that there is a market opportunity/business case for completely tablet
run or tabled controlled infrastructure a.k.a "smart infrastructure"
which most likely would be built upon Tizen ( that is if they have not
figured it our already ) so instead of risk having those standards grow
apart we work towards making the necessary steps for them complement
