Linux Kernel Development; How Fast it is Going, Who is Doing It, What They are Doing, and Who is Sponsoring It

The kernel which forms the core of the Linux system is the result of one of the largest cooperative software projects. Regular 2-­3 month releases deliver stable updates to Linux users, each with significant new features, added device support, and improved performance. The rate of change in the kernel is high and increasing, with approximately 10,000 patches going into each recent kernel release, each containing the work of over 1000 developers representing around 200 corporations.
