Linus' Law loses water when you consider using formal specifications, model checking, and -- if you have the budget and time -- proof. These systems and languages have come a long way and are far better than any human at checking your work and telling you where you are making mistakes.

Model checking in particular, in my limited experience using it, is effective at this.
