The LSB ensures that an LSB-certified application complied for a particular family of processors can run on any corresponding LSB Certified Runtime Environment. 4. LSB Binary Compatibility Binary compatibility is the expectation that a properly-coded application, which executes successfully and correctly on one instantiation of an operating system, will continue to do so on another OS of the same hardware platform. The LSB is dedicated to the idea that Linux-based applications can be portable across Linux operating system distributions.

In some cases user portability was considered, such as the inclusionof the vi editor. 2. Single UNIX Specification The Single UNIX Specification (SUS) is a set of specifications required for UNIX trademark compliance. It is developed and managed by The Open Group, an industry consortium and marketing group. The Open Group establishes the definition of what a UNIX system is and holds its associated trademark in trust for the industry. The SUS specifies the programming and user environment that must be offered by an operating system before the system can use the UNIX trademark.

It contains more APIs and features than POSIX, and it makes mandatory some features that POSIX keeps optional. POSIX threads, for example, are required for UNIX trademark compliance. The SUS also covers X11, Curses, and many more mandatory utilities than POSIX. org/version3/ More information about the SUS[4] and the Open Group[5] can be found online on their respective Web sites. 1 The Austin Group "The Austin Group" is the name given to a joint working group created by the IEEE, ISO, and The Open Group in September 1998.
