How many paid developers work on developing Ubuntu? How many of them are on Ask Ubuntu?

When I say "work" I mean they get a monetary reward (salary) for working/participating in the development of it.

  • Do you really think that Just 500 developers can make a gigantic OS who is much better than Windows 8 , Apple ? – Pratik Feb 13 '15 at 19:31

According to their own description, Canonical has over 400 staff and is focussing mainly on Ubuntu. 63% of the Linkedin-using staff is involved in development, so my guess would be something like 250.
