It's six or a half dozen... :) a programmer, I'm well aware of bugs. New code is always buggier than older, more tested code. But the nice thing about new code, is that while it may have bugs, it generally adds functionality or improves on existing functionality. The same goes for car design/engineering (albeit on a different scale). - tex
