Bugs no, updates yes - unlike that other OS whose name is not mentioned
;-) - Linux and its apps are continually refined and updated - as a
result the update cycle is far quicker then the other, but providing
you keep up to date (I feel anyway) you have far better apps. SO its
not severe bugs - more like continual updating - and that is the key to
better quality
