Re: JAWS question for a friend

Ed:

Unfortunately, companies today, particularly corporations in the USA, have
adopted Microsoft's behavior of releasing software that are full of bugs and
holes, then releasing software upgrades and patches, to repair the bugs and
fill in the holes.  The sad thing is, this immoral behavior seems to be the
acceptable way to do business today.

There are very few software companies that are blameless in this immoral
behavior.

It is unfortunate, that it has become acceptable business practice, to take
your money and sell you, what is effectively, a defective product, on the
basis that they will send you upgrades and patches to fix and repair, what
should have been fixed and repaired in the first place, before the software
package was released.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber
