A report from Linux Foundation...
"Have you got some loose change in your pocket, and dreams of building a
better operating system? It would take about 25 years, nearly 60,000
developer-years, and $10.8B to re-create a distribution like Fedora 9,
according to a new report from the Linux Foundation. "
"The Foundation chose Fedora 9, even though it is smaller than some
other Linux distributions, because Fedora uses open source software
exclusively, with the aim of creating a completely redistributable
operating system. Thus, using Fedora 9 is a good way to limit the scope
of the study to "open source only" software."
