Re: VFO not complimentary about NVDA

It's usually security concerns, I think. "open source" means the developers don't protect their code and thus it can be easily hacked.

And yes, I am well aware of the obvious counter-argument to this. But unless you're already working for the company in a capacity that would cause them to listen to your advice, that's not going to make a lick of difference.

You say you talk to employers who "don't like open source".

What is their reasoning behind this?

Do they think they get no support, do they believe the software is inferior, or what?

I'm interested to know what they think they know about "open source" which makes them say they don't like it.
