    Who Writes Linux and Who Supports It

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | • Who is Writing Linux?
    |
    | * Every Linux kernel is being developed by nearly 1,000 developers
    | working for more than 100 different corporations. This is the foundation
    | for the largest distributed software development project in the world.
    | * Since 2005, the number of active kernel developers has tripled,
    | reflecting the growing importance of Linux in the embedded systems,
    | server, and desktop markets.
    | * Between 70 and 95 percent of those developers are being paid for their
    | work, dispelling the “hobbyist” myth present from the start of open
    | source development.
    |
    | • Who is Sponsoring Linux?
    |
    | * More than 70 percent of total contributions to the kernel come from
    | developers working at a range of companies including IBM, Intel, The
    | Linux Foundation

    | The Linux Foundation (LF) has published a study on Linux mainline kernel
    | development. According to LF, the number of Linux kernel developers has
    | tripled since 2005, with many more companies contributing to the process
    | (including, potentially, the latest new LF member, Adobe). *
