man... where did that piece of venom come from? I've got to ask you a
question - if there is 'no standard', how can LSB is the answer?
SuSE is incompatible with redhat, debian, fedora, etc. Redhat is
incompatible with SuSE, debian, fedora, etc. And so forth. You need
a lot of extra effort to make a cross-linux executable distribution.
As for official releases, the fact that there is a glibc-2.3.4 and
glibc-2.3.3 itself is misleading thing. libc shouldn't give them milestone
numbers unless they consider them stable enough for use. People are not mind
readers; you shouldn't expect me to be one.
