"According to Torvalds the 2.6.34 kernel even in its rc1 stage has 400,000 new lines of code. That's a staggering number isn't it?

"But wait it gets better, Torvalds noted that approximately 175,000 lines of code were deleted too. Over half of the changes were in drivers and approximately 850 developers contributed.
