"Google and Samsung have become increasingly frequent contributors to
Linux, and each is now among the top 10 companies sponsoring the open
source kernel that powers operating systems from mobile devices to
desktops and servers.
A new Linux Kernel Development report (informally known as "Who Writes
Linux") released today by the Linux Foundation names Samsung and
Google as the seventh and eighth most frequent corporate contributors,
behind Red Hat, Intel, Texas Instruments, Linaro, SUSE, and IBM. The
report covers almost 92,000 changes to Linux from 3,738 individuals
since version 3.3 in March 2012."
