    m$ and better software

    Recently Information Week published an article attacking the power quality of software deliveried to business poffesionals (ie Oracle 9i E Business sweet w/5000 patches, Windows XP wide open to outsiders). In this article mr gates sees the light and redirects m$ employees to find the bugs prior to QA and shipping.

    I will believe it when I see it but I am interested in your comments.

    This is the fact from the article that got me:

    Even experienced programmers inject 1 defect in every 10 lines of code
    MS needs to get past this in order to develop a better OS.
