If you think that "in most companies, things do get
fixed" regarding software--

Perhaps we can discuss the various aggravating bugs in
Word or FrameMaker that have persisted through
successive releases? 8:)

The existence of longstanding bugs is epidemic, with
many of the largest companies among the worst

Perhaps we could modify your statement to something a
bit more realistic, such as " most companies that
actually care about their users" or perhaps "
most companies where the management takes pride in
their professionalism..."?

(I have found that the developers usually would love
to take care of these issues, but they are overruled
by management who thinks that new features are more
important for selling new versions than merely making
what they've already sold work as advertised!)
