Pretty cool visualization of millions of lines of code

One of my co-workers showed me this website today. 

http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/visualizations/million-lines-of-code/

It's a visualization comparing the number of lines of code of various software projects.  My software engineering classes taught me not to use lines of code as a metric for software development but I thought the visualization was pretty interesting all the same.  Someone had to be misquoted for the last entry for 500 million lines of code.
