Team sizes: webOS versus Android versus OS X

webOS: une équipe de développement de 600 personnes!” by Christophe Laporte for iGeneration [via @k33g_org] compares the sizes of the teams working on the following operating systems:
  • webOS: 600 people
  • Android (in 2009): 150 people
  • OS X: 300 people [after some research: this must have been the team size at the beginning – say, in 2000 or 2001]
That’s a surprising amount of webOS engineers. I wonder if the team was as big at Palm or if it grew to that size via HP hires.
