Maybe I’m overly idealistic. When I buy a piece of software, I expect it to be bug free. While perhaps that may be unrealistic, we all like to think that we’re buying something that has been tested to ensure a good user experience. Yet today, I find that software companies let more and more ‘bugs’ (until they’re documented, then they are called ‘features’) out the door in released code.
Just the other day, I was lamenting a bug in Quicken 2010 on Twitter.
