The Bug Nobody is Allowed to Understand

by Richard Stallman

In the 1980s, proprietary software users discovered the problem of the bug that nobody is allowed to understand. When a problem occurs in the interaction of multiple proprietary software packages with different developers, none of them is allowed to study the source code of all the pertinent programs.
