[PLUG] Microsoft's Many Eyeballs?

What do you folks think about this article?

Is it true that open source code is reviewed by many fewer eyes than we might think?

I'm dubious about the opinion of this article (i.e. proprietary code from Microsoft is more secure) considering it was written by a Microsoft developer; however, people who think Linux is more secure are usually Linux developers and enthusiasts.

Can anyone point me to an impartial opinion on this subject?
