Not really a fair comparison unless we are told how much much effort has been expended on each project, not just how much time.

Fair point:

I'm a member of the DTrace team. Development started with two people in October 2001; I joined about 6 months later. We integrated into Solaris in September 2003 so the original effort took about 5.5 man years of work. From 2003-2005 (when Solaris 10 shipped), the focus for the three of us continued to be DTrace, but we had several other projects on the side as well.
