    Phoronix: Top Contributors To The Intel Linux DRM Driver

    Curious about the top contributors to the open-source Intel Linux kernel driver, Ben Widawsky of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center did some analysis...

    Lines of code are a ridiculous measure of productivity. A good programmer might implement something in 1/10 the lines a bad programmer would use. Any programmer knows that real productivity is hard to measure.

        But these LoC get reviewed and it is to assume these are all reasonably good programmers. So it's fair to assume, the overal codebase is about the same in quality and thus the amount of commited lines do give a great sense of productivity.

            When I write code, I usually only care if it works. Then someone takes a look and sees that my 5 lines of code can be reduced to a single line. Which is nice and all, but if I had the time to look at it twice then I would have seen that it can be reduced.

            Code is code, no matter how many lines you put down.
