The world is talking about GNU/Linux and Free/Open Source Software
The biggest threat to open source in 2009
Security and updates, which are often the same thing. There is no longer any doubt that hackers and malware writers are going after open source projects as they once went after Windows. Vulnerabilities are being found, discovered, created, exchanged. The best protection against vulnerabilities is to keep software updated, but most open source lacks update services. That’s one part of the Windows license that is worth paying for, and there does not seem to be an open source equivalent.
