comment Why was Tanenbaum wrong in the Tanenbaum-Torvalds debates?
Android is pretty popular, and its open-source (Apache, not GPL though.)

comment When can I publish a software tool written at work?
+1 for talking to your employer - they may be perfectly happy (or not) to open-source this library (and not the program itself), but its the right thing to do. Several forward-thinking companies (Google, Facebook) allow their employees to open-source some of the work they do, as long as it is not the companies' core proposition. But all of them go through a vetting process.

comment Security issue about making my code public in GitHub
As @delnan points out below, GitHub allows you to host private repos for a price. Aside from the millions of public (open source) projects you can indeed see, there's probably millions of private projects on GitHub that no one outside the owner/collaborators of the project will ever see.

comment Why does Facebook convert PHP code to C++?
+1 for this: "So instead, they hack around the problem. It's just so much cheaper." Its true - if they have 3500 engineers working on their product, its way cheaper to get a small team of 5-50 people focussed on writing a good PHP->C++ compiler, than to have the entire engineering team rewrite 6 years worth of code.
