The problem with open-source software is that there is no motivation to fix bugs or create a sensible user interface...
Firefox : Memory bugs years old have never been fixed.
Open Office : It's taken me a couple of days to figure out how to do a few simple things. I've torn my hair out in exasperation and even burst out laughing at how badly designed certain features are. How about this for stupidity...
You can drag one document into another and create something called a "section". If you then "remove" the section, the text is copied into the document. This isn't a bug, it's by design. Now "unlinking" the section is a reasonable option to offer, but why no option to delete the section?
I could go on and on with examples of counter-intuitive behaviour and hidden features but I'll spare myself the agony. Most software is rubbish but open-source software can be diabolical.
