bug reporting is one of the most important parts of the open source
process. It is the only way for developers to find out what is necessary
to change for different hardware that people use and by not reporting
bugs, your only chance at getting a fix is if someone else has the same
hardware and reports. So by reporting bugs and working with the
developers, you not only help yourself but you also help others and help
provide a better user experience for everyone.

Proprietary software vendors generally do not rely on user reports and
are typically unresponsive to them.
