Most software companies are driven by revenue, not a bug-free application. The only companies where you see a lot of checks and balances with software are medical companies. And don't think it's going to get any better. Software is moving to India and China and US companies won't have a US programmer bug fixing the errors from abroad.

My question is, if people only use 5% of features (as discussed in the article) and complain about problems with bugs and usability (my own observations), why don't companies switch their attention from bells and whistles to stable products that with fewer features? I suppose Adobe sort of did that with Photoshop Elements, but I would think more companies would see the problems and address them rather than pretend the problems don't exist by covering them up with baubles.....oh wait, I guess I answered my own question. ;-)
