CORRECTION: Actually if you look at the source properly, the first section is "hundred thousand" lines of code .... not a million.

So an iPhone app takes less than 100,000 lines of code, about 50,000.

And the Camino browser takes about 200,000 lines of code.

And so on...

PA, please read the source properly before posting.

So a car has more than twice larger software than the F22?

That sounds ridiculous.
