FreeBSD On Tuesday, code-analysis software maker Coverity announced that its automated bug finding tool had analyzed the community-built operating system FreeBSD and flagged 306 potential software flaws, or about one issue for every 4,000 lines of code. The low number of flaws found by the system underscores that FreeBSD's manual auditing by project members has reduced the vulnerabilities in the operating system, said Seth Hallem, CEO of Coverity.

I've just checked the whole FreeBSD source tree and minix source tree.

408421888 Jul 20 02:06 FreeBSD-5.4-sources-all.tar
7117312 1996-09-22 14:04 CMD.tar
5633536 1996-09-22 14:04 SYS.tar

Who was saying something about FreeBSD not having a lot of bloat?

Sorry, your type of arguments...
