[SLUG] Biggest Corporate Contributions to Free Software
Who has made the biggest corporate contribution to the development of Free
Software? A bit of a mini-poll... The sarcastic can call it "Putting Your
Source Code Where Your Money Was."
There are two categories, and I've started off with a few nominees:
Corporate Development of Free Software
1) Existing and Initial Release (contributions to existing Free Software,
and software initially released by this company as Free Software).
- Red Hat: Many and varied software packages (good examples please).
- Eazel: Nautilus, Gnome.
- Trolltech: KDE, Qt.
- Ximian: Nautilus, Gnome.
- Many Linux Companies: Kernel.
2) Released Proprietary Software (contributions by this company in the form
of released proprietary software code).
- SGI: XFS and more.
- SAP: SAPdb.
- Trolltech: Qt.
Please add more!
