    "The article More than a Gigabuck: Estimating GNU/Linux's Size is now available, which examines Red Hat Linux 7.1's source code as a representative GNU/Linux distribution. It found that it would cost over $1 billion (a Gigabuck) to develop, that it includes over 30 million physical source lines of code (SLOC), and that it would have required about 8,000 person-years to develop. Red Hat Linux 7.1 represents over a 60% increase in size, effort, and traditional development costs over Red Hat Linux 6.2 (which was released about one year earlier). Its predominant software license is the GNU GPL."
