LXer: The Scariest Things in Open Source

Published at LXer:

Since today is Halloween, I thought that an article discussing some of the scary things in the FOSS world would be a nice touch. Now obviously I don't celebrate Halloween myself, but I know a lot of people who do, so this article is right in keeping with the holiday. So the question boils down to this. What are the scariest things in Open Source? In a sort of tongue in cheek way, the scariest thing to Linux and FOSS users is proprietary software. Or at least that's what you'd think given the response from most of them. I for one am in that camp, as the more I've learned about proprietary software, the less I've found it desirable to use.
