Miguel cites Joel

Hey Mr. Jorge Castro, arslinux folks, and other Joel haters,

What do you Gnome and Linux fan boys think about Miguel citing the use of a Joel principle?

Our current focus is on delivering a very stable platform, so we are trying to fix the bugs that people are reporting and give developers a great experience with their existing code base. This is just a basic Joel principle: fix bugs before you write new code.

Just for the record, I am a huge Joel fan. I’ve read many of his essays and his latest books. The only points where I disagree with Joel are on the virtues of free and open source software, and the value of operating systems such as Linux and BSD. I simply think there is a place for these things in the software world.

update:Wow, my poor English. I used sites instead of cites above.
