Default Report: Open source software quality is better than proprietary software

From http://h-online.com/-1443437

Quote:
Coverity's latest Coverity Scan Open Source Report has found that the quality of open source code is equal to, or even better than that of proprietary software.

In their announcement of the latest edition of their open source report, the Coverity researchers highlighted Linux 2.6, PHP 5.3 and PostgreSQL as projects of excellent code quality, calling them "model citizens". These projects were found to have defect densities of 0.62, 0.20 and 0.21, said Coverity.
