为了庆祝Linux 25周年,我们发布了第七版Linux内核开发报告。它分析了自内核早期以来13,500多名开发人员所做的工作,以及最近的趋势。

Key findings:

– Over 13,500 developers from more than 1,300 companies have contributed to the Linux kernel since tracking began 11 years ago.

– The Top 10 organizations sponsoring Linux kernel development since the last report include Intel, Red Hat, Linaro, Samsung, SUSE, IBM, Renesas, Google, AMD, Texas Instruments, and ARM.

– The rate of Linux development continues to increase, as does the number of developers and companies involved in the process.

– The number of unpaid developers continues its slow decline, as Linux kernel development proves an increasingly valuable skill sought by employers, ensuring experienced kernel developers do not stay unpaid for long.
