Chapter 12. Keeping Up to Date > The Not-So-Final Word on Updates

The Not-So-Final Word on Updates

Regardless of your distribution, it is important to remember that your Linux system is the product of the hard work and dedication of people from every part of the world. There are Linux companies out there and large corporations contributing to the development and maintenance of the programs that make up your system, but in the end, Linux really is a community effort. Some people earn a living developing Linux software. Others do it for the good of the community. Still others do it just for fun.
