+ - Quality: Open Source vs. Proprietary->

Submitted by just_another_sean
just_another_sean (919159) writes "Coverity Inc., a Synopsys company, released the 2013Coverity Scan Open Source Report.
The report details the analysis of 750 million lines of open source software code through the Coverity Scan service and commercial usage of the Coverity Development Testing Platform, the largest sample size that the report has studied to date.

A few key points:

* Open source code quality surpasses proprietary code quality in C/C++ projects.

* Linux continues to be a benchmark for open source quality.

* C/C++ developers fixed more high-impact defects. Analysis found that developers contributing to open source Java projects are not fixing as many high-impact defects as developers contributing to open source C/C++ projects."

I know your just kidding but that actually would be a pretty good marketing slogan for them. I wonder if they would run afoul of Ramco or whoever it was selling Freedom Rock...

Seems like it would appeal to the older, potentially less tech savvy folks they are targeting with Freedom Box.

You forgot - 2 responses pointing out that the past tense of breed is bred, not breeded.

I propose it go between 8 responses... and 1 response...

In other words some completely off topic response that points out the original person asking the question is either bad at grammar or can't spell.
