Submission + - Open source fixes bugs days faster, say reports (cio.com)

mjasay writes: "CIO Magazine reports that open source software development fixes bugs much, much faster than proprietary software development does. Days faster, in fact. Under eight hours (open source) instead of 6.7 days (proprietary software vendors). However, as the data shows, this is not because open source is perfectly developed from the start, but rather because open source's transparency and source code availability contributes to developers more easily and efficiently finding their way to both a bug and its fix. This correlates nicely with Forrester's survey indicating that CIOs are adopting open source because it gives them freedom to code (including to fix bugs) beyond the restrictions of their vendors."
