who writes Linux

This is a great article my friend Sasikanth shared with me on facebook: who-writes-linux-2012 . It provides statistics on who actually develops the Linux kernel, the rate of development, companies supporting the developers and lot of other interesting tidbits.

It is good to see that most developers are getting paid for doing what they love. Makes it a more sustainable model.

The quote "As the Linux kernel grows, the rate of change is growing with it." just sums it up. This IMHO, is very hard to achieve with a conventional business model.
