atrol: I do not have anything against MantisBT. Its awesome, but the changes I want to do in the system may or may not be in line with their bigger plans. I am working with my team to change MantisBT such that in future it might support Templating. This would give people a open hands to change the UI. I have faced a lot of issues during design change. I have always believed that no matter whether you are selling the best pie in the world, but if its not dressed properly, people may not use it at the first go.
Fogbugz launched themselves with a very easy to use UI and configuration panel. I am just looking forward to make Mantis as easy to configure and use as Fogbugz.
