This nifty chart put together at alexmarchant.com, shows some startling comparisons between the programming of the healthcare.gov website and other popular programs/websites/operating systems.
Healthcare.gov has about 500 million lines of code
Windows XP has about 45 million lines of code
Mac OSX 10.4 has about 85 million lines of code
Oh, and XP and OSX 10.4 are operating systems, healthcare.gov is a website.
Here is the chart and link to the sources for the figures.
