- And I hope that this post create several hundreds of notifications to get people to visit area51! :mrgreen:
well, you have to remember that in addition to the 150 "open" reports there are some 470 "closed" reports with a "will not fix" designation.
admittedly, some (maybe more than one half) of these reports should have different designation: many of them were actually fixed after receiving the "will not fix" designation, and many should have been designated "not a bug".
however, i estimate that more than 100 of these "will not fix" reports represent real bugs, as this is just 20%....
(it is also probably true that not all currently "open" tickets represent real bugs)

Many of the "will not fix" are user perceived errors or what they believe to be usability issues, they are intended to function that way, or its something that does not warrant the time it would take to fix the issue.
There are a lot of reasons they are marked as "will not fix".

However, more encouraging is the number of bugs that have actually been fixed: 2,949 :D

Windows XP SP3 will contain around one thousand hotfixes, piled up in 3.5 years; how should one interpret this? :P

I would interpret this as:
  • Open-source being more efficient at fixing problems than closed source.
  • Microsoft not caring to fix the brokenness that is Windows.
:P
Life's a game. Just very badly programmed.
