Proprietary vs Open Source? That is the question. Proprietary, you don't have visibility into what vulnerabilities/backdoors exist until it's "discovered" and may never get patched. Open Source, everyone can view the source code, including miscreants, but once "discovered" hopefully gets patched quickly.
