    So at work we just got into a conversation about Windows and the estimated total lines of code it took. Does anyone have a ballpark on what it is for Leopard? Obviously, this question goes out to the developers out there.

    Any guesses would be pure speculation, anyone who knows the real answer wouldn't want to risk their job.

    Unless being under NDA, why would saying how many lines of code something is be a job-risk?

    giving out the amount of lines of code could not damage apple or any company in anyway. If anything i would think that leopard has less lines of code than vista but it depends.

    Do you include applications, GUI, or just the kernel, Do you include kernel modules, drivers.

    If just the kernal well opendarwine is free and open for you to count.

    If Apple wanted to release this information, they would.

    Nice find, sndcj1!

    I knew that I remembered hearing about this at one of the WWDCs.
