A quick look a some of the leaked Windows source code confirms all our suspicions about how seriously Microsoft take software quality. This article is very interesting. I’m sure a lot of the comments in this code were never meant to see the light of day. There’s no doubt that they have some talented people working over in Redmond, it’s just that they seem to be fighting to try and fix other peoples mistakes more than getting anything truly creative done.
I have to say this is only Windows 2000 code so it must have improved a lot since then you would think. It would be really interesting to see some Windows Vista code to work out what they spent 5 years doing, you definitely can’t tell by booting the system…. ouch 😉
