Hi Robinson,

How_to_get_a_backtrace_with_WinDbg - what i just updated, so its pretty
much perfect in my eyes :), but will still polish it up in the next day.
I plan to also do a video as an update to this one <
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fppBTs215yc >, which will be short and
concise. Hopefully suokunlong will give it a try after seeing it. :)

QA/BugReport/Debug_Information - perfect resource for the QA team. The
linux part was nice and short, and i'll polish up the backtrace part, as
thats the one i've tried. The windows part links to the other page i
just did, but will polish up that as well. Someone with a mac will have
to comment on the mac part.

Development/How_to_debug - confused the hell out of me, as i thought i
had to compile libO with --enable-debug in order to send in a backtrace.
I've never compiled it before so i'll leave the editing of this one to
someone who actually compiles it.
