One of its most important features was that it provided Unix-like functionality and it worked on PCs . The use of Linux exploded, and numerous companies sprang up to distribute it. But despite all of this attention, there were so many variants of Linux that its portability, compatibility, and stability suffered. Several groups began competing standardization efforts for Linux, but it was finally the establishment of the Free Standards Group that enabled the Linux community to have a definitive specification for Linux: the LSB .
7 Open system infrastructure. , device drivers). Within the context of defining an open system, a technical architecture is a view of a system architecture that defines “a collection of the technical standards, conventions, rules, and criteria that govern system implementation and system operation” . Consortia such as the W3C and OASIS are using the term “technical architecture” to refer to their development of architecture principles, components, and services that support interoperability with complementary standards and architectures defined by their consortium and other consortia and standards bodies [11, 12].
COTS products need to be procured directly from vendors in a timely and efficient manner. In their book Managing Software Acquisition: Open Systems and COTS Products, Craig Meyers and Patricia Oberndorf discuss practices for facilitating the procurement process for standards-based COTS products . 5 Degrees of Openness When designing an open system, keep in mind that system openness is relative and depends on the number of standards in the profile, which services and interfaces they implement, and the degree of standards compliance in the products used.
