Hvad er mest sikkert, "open source" eller "closed source"? I "open source" kan man lede efter utiltænkte smuthuller ved at studere kildekoden. Fortalere for "open source" vil vende dette om og sige at dette er med til at sikre koden idet der er mange øjne til at finde fejl i koden. Et problem ved "closed source" er i hvert fald at man ikke ved hvad udviklerne ligger ind af skjulte "features".

Only Name and Comment are required fields when commenting here. If you specify your email address, everyone will be able to find it at your comment. However your email will only be directly visible when hovering over your name, and in the code behind it will not look like an email address. So the risk of bots harvesting email addresses here, should be minimal. But again, you are free to leave the email blank when commenting.

If you tick Remember me, your name, email and homepage address will be remembered and prefilled at your next visit (Uses a cookie when ticked).

Full URLs (starting with "http://" or "https://") in comment text will be converted into active links when comment has been verified by a human as not being spam. Comments that looks too much like spam, will immidiately/proactive be rejected by the system and never reach a human eye.
