Open Source Bug Lifetime: 10-2016 : Avg 5 Years (See more)

linux-bug-lifetime-2016-10So a bug has a chance of surviving for 5 years on average so far in the Linux code base. Interesting.

Here is a truth

BUGS are $ (aka bucks) Cashola, dinero, yen, etc. So Bugs = $

This is why Bill Gates knew that people will pay you to fix the bugs. Pay you lots of $ to eliminate the problems. Only assholes consciously create bugs 😀 ?

Thus, not every bug should be eliminated and for those, some create more and some eliminate some. Humans are prone to mistakes correct?

Programming can be fun. Some of us are bug hunters, bug makers or bug breakers. Some cowboys breed their own special breed of bugs 😉 *chuckle*

Some of us quietly go about our work without much fan fare or recognition. We are not in the game for that reason. Which one are you?
