The Linux operating system has many times fewer bugs than typical commercial software, according to a report.
The conclusion is the result of a four-year research project conducted by code-analysis company Coverity. The project found 985 bugs in the 5.7 million lines of code that make up the latest version of the Linux core operating system, or kernel. A typical commercial program of similar size usually has more than 5,000 flaws or defects, according to data from Carnegie Mellon University.
Coverity has not analyzed the source code to Microsoft Windows because the company does not have access to the source code, Hallem said.
Don't we all know who would have the largest number of bugs? :)
