Modularity of FreeBSD, Haiku, and OpenOffice.org

While analyzing data for my dissertation, I gave up on analyzing the modularity of FreeBSD, Haiku, and OpenOffice.org. I was trying to get 8 different modularity readings in time, but decided to stop analyzing these projects.

Why? well, after having my MBP run non-stop for a week without getting a single data point, it became clear that I will not be graduating if I continued to pursue that route. Anyone out there looked at the source code of these projects? was it surprising that the graph analysis I was performing took ages? How easy is it to find your way around these projects?

It took a whole day to obtain all readings of modularity of the Linux Kernel using the same measure. It averaged around .92, which is excellent. I take it the projects I stopped analyzing aren’t as modular as the Linux Kernel.
