Gnome GNOME developer Dave Neary has posted the highlights of his work to determine where contributions to GNOME come from. This "Census" is a combination of data mining and surveys that gives a snapshot of gnome activity and the profile of a GNOME contributor. This project's aims were to answer three questions in particular: What does the developer community look like? What companies are investing in GNOME, and how? What does the commercial ecosystem around the GNOME project look like?

RedHat writes a large part. Canonical, I'm sad to say, does not.

Neither does mandriva and opensuse apparently (unless opensuse is lumped in with Novell) but I never hear anyone complain about that. In fact, other than Novell and RH it's pretty much no real difference between the remaining contributors.
