Google’s Rachel Potvin came pretty close to an answer Monday at an engineering conference in Silicon Valley. She estimates that the software needed to run all of Google’s Internet services—from Google Search to Gmail to Google Maps—spans some 2 billion lines of code. By comparison, Microsoft’s Windows operating system—one of the most complex software tools ever built for a single computer, a project under development since the 1980s—is likely in the realm of 50 million lines.

I doubt that figure is for one single program. Google have many many different services so perhaps each service has at most a few million lines?

Damn Very Happy is this 2 * 10^9 or 2 * 10^12 ???

of course, 99.99999% (if ^9) or 99.99999999% (if ^12) of the code could be generated links-2.12\font_inc.c
