+<h2>The Bug Nobody is Allowed to Understand</h2>
+<p>by <a href="http://www.stallman.org/";>Richard Stallman</a></p>
+<p>In the 1980s, proprietary software users discovered the problem of
+<em>the bug that nobody is allowed to understand</em>. 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. As a result, none of them can
+understand the bad interaction between them, and the bug is never
+fixed except by accident.</p>
+<p>According to <a
+this article</a>, a similar problem now occurs between
+multiple instances of Software as a Service.</p>
