Linux vs Windows Bug Tracking
by Allan Edwards on Mon 5th Apr 2004 22:33 UTC

Unfortunatly, Linux still costs significantly more to develop on than windows. Swatter is a very advanced turnkey defect tracking system. It is all you need to track your bugs, to do lists, and then quickly analyze your team performance. As well, it is very scalable. To do this kind of development on Linux is about 5x as high cost wise. This is based on our real development estimstaes after writing code for both platforms and seeing what is on the market for code re use.

The mono fellows have a great idea yet a long way to go before products like Swatter will be available for Linux.
