Submission It's Official: Sun #1 In Open Source Software

farble1670 writes: "The European Commission on FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) has made it official — Sun contributes to and participates in more open source projects than any other commercial company, including IBM, Red Hat, Novell and HP. See the Economic impact of FLOSS on innovation and competitiveness (page 51) for the breakdown. In person months, Sun contributes over 3x more than the second place company, IBM.

This was concluded prior to the OpenJDK announcement, so we will see Sun's contributions grow significantly in the near future."

A bug in the hand is better than one as yet undetected.
