0 Posted by - 26th August 2016 - Technology

The latest Linux Kernel Development report is illuminating – kernel development is now highly professionalized, with something like 85% of recent changes made by paid professionals. The kernel is up to nearly 22 million lines of code. About 10,000 patches make it into every released version. Linux is a critical underpinning of business IT, mobile devices, and, frankly, you just can’t escape it. Not bad for something that “won’t be big and professional like gnu.” via #CIO, #Technology
