Class Action Suit against Microsoft

Sat Oct 4 20:03:22 GMT 2003 Class Action Suit against Microsoft

I've been a little surprised that more of the press reporting on this California suit hasn't defended Microsoft. There's been a little fussing here and there about how difficult software is, but not as much as I expected.

Perhaps people just aren't going to buy it any more. Sure, software is hard. What isn't? If engineering alone could answer all questions, why would we crash-test cars? Obviously neither engineering or crash testing can predict everything that might happen, and that's why car manufacturers get sued now and then.

Why should Microsoft (or any software vendor) be any different? No, they can't predict or prevent everything. But surely they can do better than they have done.
