  1. good list. I have used 4 out of the 10 over my career. The problem I have had at a few of my employers is that these systems are a bit too technical for non-tech staff. At my current employer most of our staff do not have a software background and mantis was a bit too confusing for them. We ended up making our own bug tracker, which was designed to be as simple as possible to use... but it certainly isn’t as feature packed as some of the products on your list. Folks here have been pretty happy with it though :)
