Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"I took some time to make a graph of the evolution of the size
of the linux kernel tar.bz2 since version 1.0 till 3.1 (297
releases). It doesn't count the stable branches (2.6.x.y).
Impressive, it's mostly exponential. If dev keeps same pace, we
should break the 100MB at linux 3.19.
