    Hot potatoes, get your red hot potatoes!

    Potato
    The number of physical lines of sourcecode (SLOC) of Debian have been counted and a paper published detailing the breakdown of the sourcecode type/source package in Debian 2.2 (aka potato). The article also gives an indicator of how much development in the proprietary environment might have cost.

    An absolutely fascinating insight into Debian, way to go lads. Now, get working on woody statistics.

    Yes, but what you need to note here is that most of this has not been done by Debian, but by external sources such as XFree86, etc.
