Subject:   Definitely true for SW projects in general

Having worked on a closed source, million+ line (C++) code for nine years with > 10 developers at any one time, I can say with experience most of these "myths" are true of large SW projects in general. That's also partly because a code that size, with a life that long and a team that big, probably resembles an open source project quite closely in some ways. Anyway, good article, though the title could probably be made more broad.
