The kernel evolution speed

Apc quotes Jonathan Corbet on his “The Kernel Report” talk in LCA 2008:

“We are adding about 2000 lines of code to the kernel every single day of the year, without exception,” Corbet said. “Nobody can really keep up with this [on their own] any more. It’s an amazing process, and it seems to be working.”

Although I didn’t (and probably can’t) contribute a single line to the kernel, reading this made me a prouder Linux user… you too ?
