Bugs, Users and Technical Depth

12 Jan 2010

Karl Fogel has a very interesting article on bugs in software, how it relates to technical dept and how to deal with them.

The number of bug reports is proportional to the number of users, not to the number of defects.

It is impossible to know the exact number of unknown bugs in a software system, yet it is easy to forget this when the reports keep pouring in.
