Linux is used extensively in systems research as a platform for the implementation of new ideas, exploiting its open-source nature. But Linux is also interesting as an object of study about software engineering. In particular, Linux defies common management theories, as it lacks any coherent plan or management structure, but still grows at an ever-increasing rate, while also gaining market share. We will review some previous studies of Linux development and add new observations regarding the lifecycle model and code complexity.

The presentation includes results of my students Ayelet Israeli, Ahmad Jbara, and Adam Matan.
