In complete disclosure – I don’t like the way Joel blogs. I’ve read his blog for a long, long time. I have trusted my defect tracking to Fogbugz since 2002 or 2003.
And – I was a beta tester of the online version of Fogbugz. And I will use it. My current client is set to use Fogbugz online as our primary defect tracking system once we launch.
I may not like how Joel blogs (no comments is annoying – and yes, I know he has forums). But Joel builds good software. Functional software. Intuitive software. It’s a freaking browser for crying out loud – if you can’t use that you shouldn’t be working with me anyway!
So congrats to Joel and the crew. Fogbugz Online works extremely well – and most importantly – it works “without effort”
FogBugz On Demand has actually been in beta since April, and in fact we have been hosting FogBugz trials on line since 2000, without ever losing anyoneâ€™s data. (The first FogBugz 1.0 trial server, believe it or not, was a Thinkpad laptop with a broken screen plugged into our office T1!) So Iâ€™m pretty confident now that our little company can do a pretty good job of hosting FogBugz for you.
