The Problem with Open Source Software – XDA Developer TV

Here at XDA, we love open source software. That’s not just because of its cost, though that doesn’t hurt. There are many reasons open source software is great: security, quality, freedom, customizability, and being able to see what the code does for yourself. But let’s not be blind fanboys. There are, as the title says, problems with open source software in certain situations.
