Does anyone know where, as in what areas, IBM has stopped contributing, and what areas TI has expanded into? I have this inherent urge to map their contributions to their current business models and use of Linux in their offerings. As we ll as a little bit of curiosity about TI picking up where IBM is leaving off.

I guess IBM don't need to contribute so much because S390 basically works now, or is getting closer to working: during initial porting and stabilization on their huge systems they had a lot of porting work to do, also scalability and related stuff.

TI hasn't really expanded their area of contribution but they've got a new CPU (OMAP4) that they're in the middle of introducing and there's a lot of development on things like the PM for their existing CPUs.

They also hired a bunch of people who were working on their chips externally (eg, taking contractors on staff) which pushed the numbers for TI itself up.
