Actually, as was already mentioned, you only have to pay for the bound
version to be sent to you. You can read the actual specification online
for free. Also note that the entire Linux coommunity does not need, nor do
most of them want, to read the UNIX 98 specification. However, IMHO it is
important that the LSB/LCS meets at least this requirement, and so I guess
I'm the only who really has to read the whole thing, and I can tell
everyone else where the holes in the current specs are. So don't worry,
I'll be the only one undergoing this torture. :)
