I agree with other posters on why this is on OSNEWS. The blogger's just had some negative experiences reporting bugs. With Ubuntu's release schedule, they would have to prioritise the bugs. In an ideal world it would be nice to have prompt responses to bugs and get an up to date current desktop but that can't happen. Something has to give.

And the complaint given here :

<quote>The focus seems to be on reducing the number of bug reports and getting their users to do more of their work for them"</quote>

I agree with the developer in trying to push as much work onto the user as possible. Imagine ( being a developer) YOU had to take the whole day to find a specific bug (when the user could do it) when you have other higher priority obligations.

Look we understand the frustration, but ease up on the guys, Man power in the open source universe isn't as easy to come by as it used to be ( look at KDE4 and other projects)
