Much, much less than "billion dollar bugs" [or] How to get those little annoying bugs fixed?
Author: JT Smith
Advogato: "Release early, release often. For programmers that's written in stone. However, how many non-programmers try (insert favourite opensource/free OS here), fire up that puppy, and find that the 'released early' application they sat down to use is 'buggy'. While it is freshmeat to you and I, to these new end-users, it's what they're running away from. And guess what? There is currently no good solution for this... those bugs are generally uninteresting and newbies don't program yet."
