The big "open source" question
I'm using GNU/Linux since 2004 because it helped me having a good sleep. Ok. It is much easier to maintain than Windows was (and is still). No virus, all free, etc.
But there is something people usually make a big deal about...
SECURITY (hence, I chose the right place).
It is believed that Windows and MS products are full of trapdoors, so as NSA can spy us with a lot of ease.
However, Linux which is developed for free by hackers who give their source codes is supposed to be totally free of trapdoors or other spywares.
It is said that anyone can check it, since the source code is available. :)
But, hey ?! Is there someone here who ever read the full code of his installed distribution ?
I mean that if we're being very paranoid, then, Goebbels said "The bigger the lie, the more it will be believed."
Is there somebody actually caring about the true content of all the source code ?
I guess i'll have to develop my own OS then ! :lol:
