Every place I have worked has had these type of problems between
developers and front line testers (quality control). This is how
new product development works sometimes. Rough relationships
between developers and testers is a good thing. If you are a developer
yourself you learn to expect this sort of thing, it all part of the
process. Linux has become serious business for many but dont forget
to have fun.
