Uh, oh, another merry-go-round. You are saying that very few users can debug the code of others, right? For some number of users M, there will only be N of them (where N is a much smaller number), that can do this, right?
Now, let's see if I can put this in a way you can understand, using such terminology.
A. For different problems the subset of M that makes up N is different, too. Some people understand GUI bugs, some people understand socket bugs, some people just get lucky and see a bug under the right conditions to diagnose it. (My paragraph quoted above.) Given a large M, there are many varying subsets N, O, P, Q, R...
Another way of saying this is:
B. When M is large, N is proportionately larger, too. I buttert that N is 'large enough'. You have done *nothing* to disprove this except say "I don't think so". You have not at any point actually talked about the measured lower defect rate of major OSS code when compared to commercial equivalents.
I'm not a Thunderbird user. I like simpler things like mutt & pine. You probably know more about the program than I do. If you want to find a bug in, say, Ostiary, please feel free.
Got one for you. Using Outlook at work (have to for some things, darn it) and tried to include a .zip file to send to a customer. I couldn't just click on the file in the selection dialog; it was the very first on in the list.
Clicking on any other file in the window would allow me to insert that file. But the one file I wanted, I couldn't insert. I finally had to type it in manually to the selector.
