Mozilla Bug Week
Monday October 22nd, 2001
Many of you are familiar with the Bug Day's that we started a few years ago. Well, with the number of people wanting to help out skyrocketing these last few months, firstname.lastname@example.org and others have decided that a bug week was in order. They'll be running it from Saturday October 27th to Sunday November 4th, and they'll have plenty of smart people on hand to help folks learn the bug system, learn how to use the various other web tools, and of course, learn some tips on how to contribute code to the Mozilla effort.

Well, you don't seem to be interested in responding to what I'm actually saying, which is that volunteer-based opens ource projects have never achieved a level of user friendliness which people have come to expect from commercial software. Programs which have come close to current usability standards, such as Nautilus, Mozilla and StarOffice, have all been heavily subsidized by commercial developers, rather than being largely volunteer-developed. I didn't see a single word in your message that spoke to this issue.
