If Microsoft is so good at testing, why does your software suck?
I was triggered to read a blog post by James Whittaker, software architect at Microsoft, through an article in Computable, a Dutch IT magazine. The dutch article was a short interview with James Whittaker about his work at Microsoft and for Visual Studio 10. He mentioned the title of his blog post to show that testers at Microsoft are aware that bugs do.

From the same author, a post comparing developer to tester ratios at Microsoft and Google is an interesting read.
Both articles give a open look into Microsoft with regards to software testing.
A quote from the dutch article (poorly translated): "Perfect software? It's not going to happen. People build nothing that is perfect"
