Someone need to come up with a way quantify a tool or applications 'quality'. Like pick 20 or so measures of software engineering quality and then give each app or tool a score. Maybe create some non-profit to do it. The ship of software development seem to me to have been going backwards for years. I think maybe it's accelerating backwards.

Isn't the measure in defects/KLOC?

OP is talking about a host of design defects or poor software engineering decisions (on top of coding defects), which effect security, flexibility, maintainability, enhanceability, understandability, interoperability, reliability, and my list here is probably incomplete.

And they think WIndows is virus-prone...

Sounds like someone was happy with Unisys Mapper.

I'd loose my marbles if my job required me to sit behind a desk all day. And fuck, the endgame of software dev is human misery.

I enjoy not working with humans.
