Broken Software is Broken

I have very low expectations of open source software, and I don't feel put out when I have to fix it. But when I use close source software I expect it to 'just work' and get frustrated when it doesn't.


sthorne@pearl~/w/netbox> dropbox stop
Dropbox isn't running!
sthorne@pearl~/w/netbox> dropbox start
Dropbox isn't running!
Dropbox is already running!
sthorne@pearl~/w/netbox> killall dropbox
sthorne@pearl~/w/netbox> dropbox start
Starting Dropbox...Done!

I really shouldn't complain too loudly. As I'm in the process of backing up all my email I've ever received to it.

I'm glad I found your Blog today. This is really what I'm looking for. Thank you and also thanks for sharing your suggestions so certainly. Software is broken most of the time. You probably don’t think much about it, but then again, when Microsoft or Apple push out an operating system (OS) update, you don’t pause to consider that, either. Those updates, usually automatic, fix bugs, patch security holes, and correct other problems.
