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.

Got something to add? Send me email.

The man who receives five thousand dollars a year wants six thousand dollars a year, and the man who owns eight or nine hundred thousand dollars will want a hundred thousand dollars more to make it a million, while the man who has his millions will want everything he can lay his hands on and then raise his voice against the poor devil who wants ten cents more a day. (Samuel Gompers)
