I've had very bad experience with FogBugz, sure the interface "looks" great, but functionallity on large Bug databases is shit. The interface was not made for Enterprise size programs (where you get hudred of bug checking's etc. pero day). There is no way Mozilla, linux, etc, could be tracked with FogBugz.

Although not all rant. It is definitally pleasing for small projects, I would definitally go with it. [quote] Secondly, it is really over-complicated. I've heard it several times where people didn't submit a bug because they couldn't figure out how. [/quote]

That's not nessecarily bad. I can't imagine how much MORE shit there would be in bugzilla if the tipical wanker (user) filed a bug for everything they see.

bugzilla is primarily for programers to track their own bugs (in closed source projects), few outside the development can start bugs, secondly they are not for everyone to submit, this is why TalkBack feature/ webforms and e-mails exist.

Again, this is not a rant on FogBugz, but I can't imagine a better system than bugzilla for this scale of a project. (true, for FreeDOS it could have been an option, if they had some extra cash they wanted to spend on good looks.
