2 years ago, I published some statistics about the linux kernel code size. See some comments on the LKML about this. Where are we now? I have updated the data and here is what we got:
My first projection predicted linux-3.19.tar.bz2 (if it’s still the same numbering scheme) would hit the symbolic size of 100MB, and it is still accurate today.
Disclaimer: as there was some misunderstanding the first time, I remind you that this graph shows tarball size against release count (and not time). There are many ways to draw data, I chose one I thought interesting.
