How Does Heartbleed Alter the 'Open Source Is Safer' Discussion?

Barsteward Re:Why is Raymond's claim theoretically sound? (580 comments)

"Raymond's proposition is theoretically sound No, it isn't. It's nonsense and it always has been."

it would be nonsense if Raymond said there are no bugs but he didn't. Maybe comprehension is required, "bugs are shallow" means there will be a few bugs.

Barsteward (969998) writes "Now, who would want to be a iPhone developer after this story? You can spend all your waking hours developing a piece of software for the iPhone only to have it rejected because it may be in competition with Apples own offering and then not be able to disclose why it was rejected because your rejection letter is under a NDA... Crack out those iJackboots...."
