Bug Free Open Source

Actually, “zero defects” meant that at any given time, the highest priority is to eliminate bugsbefore writing any new code.

I am blown away by The Joel Test: 12 Steps to Better Code article by Joel Spolsky.

He is correct in saying that most software that we see in wild would come around 2-3 on his 12 point scale. Open source would be completely different if it adopted the Zero Defect Methodology.
