Such rigorous testing in all conceivable environments can quickly create a
testing effort that is more complex and costly than the software development
effort that spawned it. So, there is a tendency on the part of rational
managers to say "Enough! Ship the product!"

My only gripe with QA is that generally it isn't
rigorous enough. At this point, even relatively simple
software or hardware is going to be interacting with
so much stuff - OS, peripherals, other software - that
not testing it would be suicidal in my view. The QA
can be informal.
