Here's a small collection of links to take the edge off my general grumpiness at how much software really does suck. Presumably more will follow.
Firefox will be released with many known bugs.
I can't get some GNOME stuff working in emulation, because of this really silly bug caused by certain cards not having carrier detect. Oh, and Ubuntu's wireless network manager can't find my wireless network, either, despite every other OS on the planet (OK, just Windows and Mac OS X ;) having no trouble.
Chandler releases Windmill. While this looks like a really great Web testing tool, I have to wonder about the many recursive software-development-projects-to-help-develop-software open source people tend to work on. (Not that I'm a poster boy for focus or anything...)

This "80% bugs in Firefox 3" is just nonsense. See for example this counterargument: <a href="http://shaver.off.net/diary/2007/11/16 /what-makes-firefox-3/">http://shaver.off.net/diary/2007/11/16/what- makes-firefox-3/</a> Or look at <a href="http://planet.mozilla.org">http://planet.mozilla.org</a> there are a lot more refutations there.

What's the Linux equivalent of Camino?

Carl: thanks for the correction. I'm still skeptical, given the general downhill trajectory of Firefox in my hands, but I do stand corrected on the 80% of bugs issue. Erich: Firefox. ;)
