+ - Analyzing 450 Million Lines of Software Code

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "A new report details the analysis of more than 450 million lines of software code through the Coverity Scan service, which began as the largest public-private sector research project focused on open source software integrity, was initiated between Coverity and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2006. Code quality for open source software continues to mirror that of proprietary software — and both continue to surpass the industry standard for software quality. Defect density (defects per 1,000 lines of software code) is a commonly used measurement for software quality. The analysis found an average defect density of .69 for open source software projects, and an average defect density of .68 for proprietary code."
