It seems that the advantages of open source are becoming more and more appreciated. In an online article of The Wall Street Journal, author Lee Gomes, suggests and hopes that Microsoft is make the code of their windows product open for everybody to see.
Open-source software such as Linux is traditionally seen as the opposite of proprietary software from the likes of Microsoft and Apple. But that’s a false dichotomy.

If Windows were a car, you’d never be able to open the hood and see what was underneath.
Well maybe he is talking more about transparency than open source…. Hard to tell.
