The Linux Foundation Releases Development Report Ahead of 25th Anniversary of Linux

The Linux Foundation has released its annual Linux kernel development report that highlights the growth of the operating system, its progress and overall success. Good reading even if you aren't an alternative OS user.

The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit advancing professional open source management for mass collaboration, today announced the immediate release of its 2016 report "Linux Kernel Development - How Fast It is Going, Who is Doing It, What They are Doing, and Who is Sponsoring It". The report comes just days before the 25th anniversary of the initial release of the Linux kernel by Linus Torvalds on August 25, 1991, and analyzes the work done by over 13,500 developers over more than a decade, as well as more recent trends.
