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".

Where's my barf bag?

This is too unreal. A search on the keyword 'bugs' to determine how a company treats "reporting" of bugs in it's products? Was some reporter bored?

Is MSNBC just turning into 'The Onion'? I thought it was bad enough that MS partnered with them.
