|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.[circular reference] 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 other distributions such as Arch Linux have since adopted.
