Along with the Linux kernel, another interesting tidbit.

"There were eight major software vendors that turned up from our 
analysis and that included Apple, Debian, FreeBSD/NetBSD/OpenBSD, 
Gentoo, Mandriva, Novell, Red Hat, and Tungsten Graphics. The biggest 
software company contributing to the X server has been Red Hat"

"In third place for the number of commits is Adam Jackson, an employee 
of Red Hat. Adam has just been committing to X.Org since 2004 but he 
represents over 9% of the total workload. Adam Jackson is serving as the 
X.Org 7.4 release manager."
