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".

IE 5 for the Mac won't have a big impact. Mac users are still pretty sore about what Microsoft's done to them over the years (and is now just getting back to doing, according to a article from today).

And don't even start about IE 5 for Unix.... It's got about three features. It installs, it starts, it crashes. :)

And Netscape is about 6 months away, not a year. Beta's due in a month or two, not 6.
