Understanding the Fog Bugz Philosophy

FogBugz is based on two core principles:

• Track as much product-related communication as possible in a single tool.

• Keep everything as simple as possible (but no simpler!).

By sticking to these principles, Fog Creek has been able to deliver a tool that can be installed in minutes and that the average developer can start using immediately. Unlike some products in the field, FogBugz does not let you customize everything. Excessive flexibility can lead to an organizational paralysis while people debate which bug statuses to use, how to organize workflow, and so on. In contrast, FogBugz lets you customize the things that really vary between organizations (like the name of the project that you're working on), while delivering a robust set of core features that just work.
