LXer: Survey: Open source developers jump on bugs, open to closed tech
Published at LXer:
It comes as no surprise that open source software developers are fixing bugs faster and faster, but the majority of Linux developers' willingness to use proprietary products -- a la the Bitkeeper debacle -- may be more likely to raise eyebrows.
