The Cost in Fixing Bugs and How Irresponsible Disclosure doesn't Help the Matter


....In case your head is in the sand and you didn't realize it, software companies are BUSINESSES. That's right. They are in the business to make MONEY. Don't get shocked by this. Don't dwell on it. Accept it as a fact of life. Hopefully the software companies you work with day to day try to build quality product that solves real pain points for you. If they didn't, then you probably wouldn't care much, and have very little vested into their success as they aren't doing anything to help you (at this time anyways).

I could dig deep into discussing the economics of running a software business, and how software is (and always will be) shipped with bugs, but I don't have to. Dana Epp's ramblings at the Sanctuary: The Cost in Fixing Bugs and How Irresponsible Disclosure doesn't Help the Matter
