Nokias role?

Nokias role?

Parent article: 2.6.39 development statistics

I was really wondering why Nokia came up so high on the list. After their switch to the other big vendor I assumed they would no longer put (so much) ressources into the Kernel.

Anyone got some insights?

I can't say anything about what will happen in the future, and I doubt they'll suddenly go down to absolutely nothing even though they announced a switch, but keep in mind that these numbers are "historic" already. Almost all development that went into 2.6.39 was done before the 2.6.38 release (which was in March), the stabilisation period is just a process that follows after that.

Nokia is a big company. I bet there's a lot of Linux in their telco equipment, for example.

Harmattan is approaching (FSVO "approaching") release - as noted, Feb 11th doesn't mean an immediate layoff to everyone working on MeeGo (or on other uses of Linux)
