I've never worked at a company where the software had to be perfect to
be released.

Errors in documentation are different: There's an assumption that if you
find one, you can usually fix it quickly (unless you've already printed
15,000 manuals...). But software bugs can be judged too expensive or
time-consuming to resolve in the current build.
