No offense but we are in 2008 not 3008. It is difficult enough to track bugs at the moment
(hence the fact that I have one in amorok well actually not amorok, one of the libs) but can
you imagine if every person on the planet was to compile there own software.
How many different optimisations would there be. Where would the bug be. It could be in any
of a hundred different optimised setting.
And I could then imagine sun redhat etc only supporting the software if you bought there
hardware because they could only test it on that. And even then the potential to fall over an
optimisation bug. That could mean finding a missing ( in about 3 million lines of code. That
os would cost quite a lot of money.
Lets keep it simple. Try and reduce the number of bugs not increase them.
