I love open source. After I had my problems with Firebird 0.7.0, I went to Bugzilla like a good open source user, and wrote a bug entry. Several days later my problem was solved and I’ve been running the nightly ever since.
Now 2 weeks later, Firebird 0.7.1 is out, containing 4 major bug fixes, plus speed enhancements, Panther compatibility enhancements, and a couple of features. Compare that to IE where you’ll have to wait until 2006, to find out if they’ve fixed your bug.
