Simple answer: they TESTED a lot, and FIXED practically no bugs
that were found. This is the typical rush-to-market strategy.
Only this time, it might backfire. Windows losers are actually
waking up to this fact: they are still being used as a test bed
for MS products.
> The old adage that "computer science will always have bugs" (or some trite)
This was a quote from an MS marketing spin doctor. Absolute rubbish!
As a Comp.Sci. grad, I've never found "bugs" in computer science ;)
And it ain't no "old adage", it is a misquote of the old adage
that computer software will always have bugs.
Remarks like the above reveal the truth not about the subject of the
sentence, but the marketing droid herself: a truly idiotic uninformed
parroting moronic imbecile without a clue, that is believed by some of
the sheep all of the time . <sigh>
Anyway, go, MS, go ... keep shotting yourself in the foot
with revealing articles like this. [Have they gone mad?]
