The origin of the angular momentum content of galaxies of different types is discussed based on results from recent cosmological hydrodynamical simulations such as Illustris. Simulations show that it is governed by several distinct drivers: formation/merger history, halo spin, and feedback, which however act together in certain regimes to produce complex dependencies.
