The table says: "open source". I understand the whole open source principle, but in this table we should elaborate why this is an advantage. To me open source means either:

  1. I can customise it if I need (which leads to the disavantage to DOS that is it a complex thing to do)
  2. There is a community that keeps making it better (which leads to the disadvantage in Windows that it needs patches)
  3. Free (does not apply to all open source software) but "free" is already mentioned.

So where does exactly lie the benefit in the "open source" statement? Felsir 02:39, 3 April 2006 (EDT)
