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".

Personally, I think threaded and flat mode both have their own advantages... threaded is nice because all the replies to a certain topic SHOULD be in the same thread. Flat is nice 'cause you can just click on a link, get a cup of coffee, come back and start scrolling thru the messages (or even read the offline)... downside, everything is all scattered and you have to remember what the different topics were...

The solution: Nested mode... the both of best worlds... if it was availble, I know I'd use it exlusivly... :O) (maybe a spell checker to... lol)
