comment Any good open source test management tools ?
I was aware of testlink, I wasn't aware it is open source. It is the sort of thing I am after, but not exactly. I can't put my finger on why ....

comment Using FitNesse with .Net across multiple servers
Peter, if you are testing web services in the .net stack, why don't you consider just using the mstest unit testing infrastructure as a client calling the web services. I know that you don't get fit as a front end, but it can solve a lot of the other issues. You could consider using spcflow in leiu of fit.

comment MTBF for a software product
I am not sure what you are trying to use the metric for, normally you would collect this data from the support function for server reliability or customer hardware failures. You would calculate from date usage started. Number of bugs is not the number of failures as one design issue could cause hundreds or thousands of physical devices to fail, like if say, it was a firmware bug that only occurred in rare situations.
