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.

lol, that really wasn't my point... people that use windows generally use it because they don't know anything different or they don't want to know anything different..... people that use Linux or BSD use them because they for one reasone or another believe oss is better for their particular application.....

and yes.. those people do care about buggy software/kernels.... if linux and or bsd were so bad.... they would stick with windows
