Parent article: Comparing free and proprietary software defect rates
Linux also has many more people looking for race conditions
in it than any of the proprietary systems that they compared
it to. Therefore, we can reasonably expect it to compare
favorably in that area vs. the other systems.
This is not to say Linux would show well, on an absolute scale,
in its number of remaining race conditions. It probably stinks.
The proprietary stacks, though, probably stink far, far worse,
for exactly the same reasons that they leak worse.
