It’s not about Open Source, it’s about process

I can’t resist. This is one of the dumbest articles ever. The title alone “OpenSSL Heartbleed: Open Source Bloody Nose for Open Source Bleeding Hearts” just bespeaks volumes in terms of idiocy. A somewhat veiled attempt at poking at the efficacy of open source code. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll support a proprietary system in a heartbeat (no pun intended) if it’s good. That being said, this has more to do with design/code review processes than open source code quality. In fact, maybe I could have saved the 83 previous words I just wrote and barked “1994 Pentium Floating Point Bug”
