    Linux: Fewer Bugs Than Rivals?


    The story is old, from December 2004, but so far I have failed to track down the Standford University study mentioned in the Wired article
    <http://www.wired.com/news/linux/0,1411,66022,00.html>

    Anyone read the original study or know where I can obtain a copy of it?

    Do you really need to?

    The study identified 0.17 bugs per 1,000 lines of code in the Linux kernel. Of the 985 bugs identified, 627 were in critical parts of the kernel. Another 569 could cause a system crash, 100 were security holes, and 33 of the bugs could result in less-than-optimal system performance.
    I bet most of them have been fixed by now...
