There are certainly lots of bugs in Mathematica though it is my  
impression that there are probably fewer than it its best known  
competitor (although I have to confess I have not tried a very recent  
But the number of actual bugs in Mathematica is only a small fraction  
of the number of imaginary bugs that exist in the minds of  
inexperienced users (you can confirm it by searching for the word  
"bug' in the archives of the MathGroup). So just to be sure I think  
it might be a good idea to post some of the bugs or perhaps "bugs'  
that you have found.
