Things won't improve until two things are addressed. First FOSS devs drop the attitude that "It crashes sometimes" is an acceptable condition for software intended for productive work.
Really? That's the attitude of FOSS developers? I call that BS.
I think chances are spoiled users of proprietary software mistake being able to communicate directly with the developers with entitlement that a developer has to jump directly when a user discovers a bug.
No, bugs are handled with different priorities and just because a bug annoys you the most, it is not necessarily the most crucial bug to fix first.
If you want bug priorities to change, just announce to give 100 bucks to whoever fixes a bug you run into.
Bug bounty programs are quite common in FOSS.
