Open Source Security

Open Source software tends to be one of those religious topics, where people have strong opinions and feelings that are informed by more than simple facts. It's the kind of topic that is fun to cover because it often brings far more reader and listener response than other, less emotionally-charged areas. In this podcast we wade in with both feet, talking with Mike Ferris, Redhat's Director of Solutions Strategy. He had some interesting things to say, and you can hear them here.

If you're one of the folks who has a strong opinion on open-source software--especially as it concerns security, let me know. I can imagine a whole series of interesting conversations coming out of this topic.
