Bill Gates’ Software Philosophy: Why fix bugs when we can deliver features?

Finally, an explanation for why Windows Vista is such a train wreck:

“The reason we come up with new versions is not to fix bugs. It’s absolutely not. It’s the stupidest reason to buy a new version I ever heard. When we do a new version we put in lots of new things that people are asking for.  And so, in no sense, is stability a reason to move to a new version.  It’s never a reason. “

Bill Gates, in an interview with German weekly magazine FOCUS (nr.43, October 23,1995, pages 206-212)
