|Known for||udev, systemd, Gummiboot|
Kay Sievers is a computer programmer, best known for developing the udev device manager of Linux, systemd and the Gummiboot EFI boot loader. Kay Sievers made major contributions to Linux's hardware hotplug and device management subsystems.
In 2012, together with Harald Hoyer, Sievers was the main driving force behind Fedora's merging of the /lib, /bin and /sbin file system trees into /usr, a simplification which has since been adopted by other distributions such as Arch Linux.
