MSNBC Gives Netscape Bug Reporting an 'F'

Monday July 26th, 1999

Ben Gertzfield writes, "Get this -- MSNBC is grading different corporations on how good their public bug-tracking systems are.

And, of course, being a MS-run site, they give Netscape an F because they couldn't find bugzilla.

How sad. Netscape is the ONE corp that's good enough to make all of its bugs totally public AND release their bug-tracking software as open source software, and MSNBC has to pull a stunt like this. See the article link for the exact text."

To find out about the quality of a company's bug reporting system, they do a search on "bug".

#1 always good for comedy!

in fairness: almost as funny as rating bug-openness by doing a cursory search for "bug" on the main home page (!?) is the following quote in the section where they reviewed microsoft:

-- You'll get 200 hits if you search on "bug" on Microsoft's vast online Knowledge Base, which is like searching the Arctic for snowflakes and finding 200. --
