Forgot this:

Can someone name a closed source software (besides netscape which is heavily
based on mozilla) who offers a monetary reward for security bugs?
A recent reesarch found the following open source projects:
DJB's qmail - cr.yp.to
some version of TEX IIRC Knuth's, don't have URL right now.

Has m$ has the guts to offer $$$ for crashes? :)
