In a world where certain hardware developers are wont to open their specs, this is not surprising. When we talk about "Linux" proper, that's the kernel. It's much easier for employees of HW companies to contribute(with or without official support) there. I would likewise expect the remaining 25% to be made up of hard-core computer scientists and/or mathematicians.
