Un articolo di LWN.net aggiorna le modifiche portate al Kernel 3.0 di Linux. Molte le modifiche riportate da Red Hat:
343 Changes made by Microsoft developer K. Y. Srinivasan
1,085 change provided by independent developers
Red Hat provided 1,000 Changes in Kernal 3.0
Intel provide 839 changes
Srinivasan comes in at the top because he made a lot of minor changes. Srinivasan and Microsoft are therefore nearer the bottom of the list. LWN.net found that Microsoft developers changed 11,564 lines of code (1.3 per cent) – compared to Intel’s 163,232 (18.1 per cent).
