The OOo engineers are blogging about how bad their code is.

That's a lot of bugs.

Perhaps the worst part: they used pie charts to try to show their point. Wink

As long as they get Hebrew/Arabic correct on the Mac, that would be sufficient at this point. At least NeoOffice gets it correct.

What I find interesting is that they don't have resources to fix their own bugs. Every employer that I have worked for (and one of them was Sun Microsystems) has made it pretty clear that if your code is broken, you are responsible for fixing it.

I understand that they have limited resources, but what I find a bit unbelievable is that they while they can't afford to fix bugs, they apparently have time to replace the native Mac OS X print dialog with their own custom built print dialog.

Not only does this new dialog drop Mac OS X's Preview button but, even worse, they are implementing features that the native Mac OS X print subsystem already does. For example, the "N-Up" feature already exists in the Layout option in the native Mac OS X dialog.
