Some people have a really hard time seeing this important distintion between the number of reported bugs and the number of actual bugs. You just simply get no concrete indication of the number of actual bugs by looking at the number of reported bugs. It sounds silly, but all the reported numbers tell you is the number of bugs reported. This become insanely important when you have THOUSANDS of reporters which you simply don't have in traditinoal cathedral based closed source products. In order to tell the actualy quality of a project (real bugs) then you need to look at other numbers like MTBF, which you so nicely pointed out. It's amazing how many times this argument has gone over and over here, it shouldn't be this hard for people to understand.
