As of this post the Linux kernal represents 5,552 years of human effort according to https://www.openhub.net/p/linux estimates. Even considering a wide range of error in that estimate it is still incredible.

A a £303 million dollar project in ‘free’ use by the very underpinnings of the internet. Pretty wild.

1: firta going in.

2: utube’s auto transcription [below] of this clip gives interesting clues as to the nature of their algorithms. I find the inclusion of police 3 times very interesting in particular
