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

mx_mx_mx Oh well (582 comments)

How 'bout that SSL bug discovered not recently in OSX/iOS?

Sure the open source is not a silver bullet, nobody argues this.
And law of big numbers sure does it thing, yes, shit happens in open source just as well.
But how often this happens in open source vs closed source?
How often such incidents go unnoticed in closed source world?

Annual US Intelligence Bill Tops $80 Billion

mx_mx_mx Re:Costs.. (230 comments)

But that exactly what I wanted to say.
US spends so much money on useless things that even that completely useless agency budget in 2 years covers costs

Heck if we could cut these completely useless budgets, we probably had a space colony on mars by now

Annual US Intelligence Bill Tops $80 Billion

mx_mx_mx Costs.. (230 comments)

When we talk about space, we always compare the Iraq war to costs of building good
spaceships, like Apollo for instance.

Heck, here a one year budget is almost exactly half of total cost of Apollo program in modern money.
80 Billion vs 170 Billion.
