Quality’s still beating heart

James Bach blogged last week about the Death of Quality

Quality is dead in computing. Been dead a while, but like some tech’d up version of Weekend at Bernie’s, software purveyors are dressing up its corpse to make us believe computers can bring us joy and salvation.

You know it’s dead, too, don’t you? You long ago stopped expecting anything to just work on your desktop, right? Same here. But the rot has really set in. I feel as if my computer is crawling with maggots. And now it feels that way even when I buy a fresh new computer.

and it occurred to me that if quality is dead, it is because we have been neglecting to pay its medical bills.

If we want to resurrect quality, we all need to chip in and, in an attempt to do my bit, I bought a Mac.
