I'd like to add that IF security problems get discovered in OSS,
it's usually just a matter of few time that this problem gets
corrected. This is mostly because the public is able to look at

that's true - i pointed it out at the beginning.
It can be found easily that someone adds backdoor intentionally.
But unintentional security holes are different thing.

Everyone can find them and fix, but at the same time everyone can find them and use them.

With closed source both are more difficult.

In MICROS~1 land, you give yourself entirely into the hand of a
corporation that is not interested in selling secure products,

So this is not open/closed source problem, but micro-soft approach.
They just don't care about security. As they don't care about performance and about bugs. But that's just micro-soft.

A counter-example is VMS. It is a commercial product, but highly
reliable and secure.

At least is said too, i never used or even seen VMS.
