in thread What is quality?

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."

    That's very similar to something I read about artists - and that I believe applies to software developers. The saying was along the lines of "(an artist|a programmer) doesn't finish a work so much as s/he abandons it." I guess if they won't abandon it, you have to shoot them...
