Black Duck Software Busts Myths About Application Development

Today, Black Duck Software released a summary of their findings regarding five common myths about using open source in application development. The myths are:

  1. Open Source is just source code

  2. Open Source adoption is mostly application infrastructure

  3. There are a few billion lines of code out there

  4. Real programmers do NOT comment

  5. GPL Version 3 is being ignored

OSBR readers may remember Black Duck Software from the article Improving Application Development by Managing Licensing Issues and the TIM Lecture The State of Open Source Software and Corporate Software Development.
