Windows It's been nearly two months since the beta of Windows 7 was officially released to the general public, and some of us have been getting fidgety to know just what bugs have been reported and what will be fixed. Microsoft was biding its time, letting the information collect and nearly stagnate, when we finally got official word on some of the results of the testing process.

Microsoft's bug tracker has a lot of super sensitive information. Things like a bug that crashes MSIE due to a buffer overflow in the DHTML parser (usually the bug has a test case or sample file attached as well). Another category is bugs opened as a result of Microsoft partners calling in, clearly they need to keep customer data confidential. At the end of the day, Microsoft has a lot of things they don't want to share with the public, that's why it's called closed source; because you're out of the loop.
