Why Buggy Software Gets Shipped

melquiades A grossly oversimplified market explanation (422 comments)

Software will stop being buggy as soon as people stop putting up with it.

If people actually stopped buying Windows because it sucks, you can bet your sweet darned bippie Microsoft would stop making it suck. As it is, honestly, why should they care? People keep using Windows. It makes no business sense for them to focus on quality if quality doesn't sell.

<flamebait>There is already a company that caters to the niche market that actually gives a rat's ass about consumer software quality. It's Apple -- and oh, look at how they just dominate the desktop computer market....</flamebait>
