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".

Actually, Corel hasn't necessarily dropped Macintosh as a platform for WordPerfect Office.... They just haven't decided yet whether to provide a new version or not. The latest version of the product, Corel WordPerfect 3.5 Enhancement Pack, will be available for free download for Mac users on August 16. In addition, new consumer graphics programs for Mac are under development. No announcement has been made either way on the possibility of a new WordPerfect for Mac.... They just say that they won't develop on the 3.5 code base anymore (which is a very good thing, as it's antiquated).
