Contemporary kernel development is spread out among a broad group of people, most of whom are paid for the work they do.
I was wondering what is the source for that. In the article you have data showing that most contributions come from non-volunteers, but that does not mean they are the majority of contributors. We could have a small number of paid coders doing most of the job and a lot of volunteers doing small portions. Do you happen to have the absolute numbers for paid and volunteer coders contributing to the kernel?
