spiritway, today: "At some point it becomes necessary to release a product while the need for it still exists, while the price is still within reach of the target market, even if there are lingering issues."

MacUser, November 1990: "There comes a time in the history of any project when it becomes necessary to shoot the engineers and begin production."
