Got bugs? New project lets real computer users gang up on software bugs

Ben Liblit offers a bold prediction regarding all of the complicated software programs churning away in your computer:

They have bugs. All of them. Guaranteed.

"Software bugs are part of the mathematical fabric of the universe," says Liblit, a University of Wisconsin-Madison computer scientist. "It is impossible with a capital 'I' to detect or anticipate all bugs."

The science behind this real-world debugging approach received national attention this year. The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) named Liblit's doctoral diss......

He has posted 192 versions of eight different open-source applications during the three-year life of the project.

The system averages just under 3,000 new reports per month, and bug rates vary a great deal across......
