The exterminators, or how to build good software

The IEEE Spectrum is really a high-level magazine about technology. And has very interesting articles.
This one, subject of a Slashdot story: An English company that make software with very few bugs. For critical-purposes sofware. When you build a sofware to make big money-transactions, control a plane or a power plant, you simply can't make errors.

The methods explained in the article are sure valuable and usable for every project, including open-source; and although the programming language specified (Spark) is commercial, there are a lot of open-source alternatives. Like Eiffel (smarteiffel as GNU project), or OCaml. Some formal checkers are available too.

Another cool software...

... that it's not possible to compile without messing up my system with tons of externs library. Maybe that's good that I don't spend time on such games.
