NewsOpen Source Is Better Than the Closed Stuff (Until You Hit 1 Million Lines) PinstaffTerrence Dorsey14-May-13 14:09 
In the dark old days of the late 1990s and early 2000s, debates would rage about whether open source software is as good as proprietary software. And it was all a matter of opinion. Then, in 2006, the Department of Homeland Security partnered with a software code analysis company called Coverity to examine open source code for security vulnerabilities and software defects. Each year since, Coverity has published a report on the quality of open source code.... But the latest report, published on Wednesday, found something new: the code quality of open source projects tends to suffer when they surpass 1 million lines of code, whereas proprietary code bases continue improve when they pass that mark.
Next question: who really needs 1 million lines of code?
