Parent article: OLS: On how user space sucks
Pardon, but I'm guessing from reading your comment that you might have
missed Dave's point. I don't think his point was to point out specific
problems with specific applications -- his point was to make it clear that
we should be paying more attention to such things in general.
Having a super-robust and massively efficient kernel is only half the
battle. Without making similar improvements in user-space (or worse,
losing ground because of the sort of problems Dave brings up), the free
software desktop as a whole won't improve.
Asking "where's the bug reports" has always seemed to me like a defensive
response. The correct response is to acknowledge that there is a problem
and fix it.
