Xandros Linux Server First to Receive LSB Certification

Xandros today announced that Xandros Server 2.0 is the first product to be certified by the Linux Foundation through use of the LSB Distribution Testkit (LSB DTK). Xandros engineers worked closely with their Linux Foundation counterparts in perfecting the new, automated testing procedures that will facilitate broad application developer support to Xandros Server 2.0 and all other standards-based Linux operating systems.

“Xandros Server 2.0 brings Linux server solutions closer to mainstream use. We are especially pleased that Xandros has validated our new testing toolkit in the process of certifying to the latest LSB specification,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation. “A common testkit together with common standards paves the way to broad application support for Xandros and other standards-based Linux solutions providers.”

“We are very proud that Xandros Server 2.0 has the honor of being the first Linux solution to use automated testing procedures to certify to the latest Linux Foundation LSB specification,” said Ming Poon, Xandros VP of Product Development. “The new testing toolkit worked like a charm and should provide a major boost to Xandros Server and other standards-based Linux distributions by making it easier than ever for application vendors to support the entire Linux ecosystem.”

Xandros launched the first Linux server to provide a powerful platform for enterprise administrators and SMBs with little or no Linux experience. The next-generation Xandros Server 2.0 line will be available this spring. The award-winning Xandros Server complements the company’s award-winning desktop, software deployment, and cross-platform management software to complete an intuitive, end-to-end line of Debian-based Linux solutions.
