About Linux United










What is Linux United?

The Linux United organization provides a forum for discussion and implementation of standards for the Linux community. The organization brings together the Linux community in an effort to enhance the useability of Linux and to help position it to become a competitive mainstream operating system. Several projects from the Linux community are currently being integrated into this effort to ensure that Linux United remains open to views from around the net, and continues to be a valuable source of information and services to the Linux community.

The Linux United project closely mirrors the Linux effort. It consists of two major parts: infrastructure, and implementation. Both parts are essential to the growth and development of Linux.

There are several documents available that detail the structure and purpose of Linux United.

The infrastructure part of this project coordinates active projects from around the Linux community. This helps these projects in several ways. It adds consistency, avoids redundancy, and increases visibility of the individual projects.

The projects involved consist of services that are much needed. Volunteer databases, product catalogs, bug tracking, etc. All of these projects are currently being implemented by individual groups. Linux United provides a forum for these groups to share ideas, and to work towards a common goal that is beneficial to Linux.

Who is involved?

Currently the project is being worked on by many people who volunteer their time, effort, and resources. As Linux United continues to grow and gain more support from other projects and organizations more people will contribute.
