On software testers - Joel Spolsky

This quote was added by mahmoudhossam
Rose is on the test team. Everyone agrees that she reminds them of those middle-aged ladies you see in Vegas, sitting there slack-jawed for hours, shoveling quarter after quarter into the slot machines, only she's testing software. You can throw her a new version of your code and she'll test it on 23 different Linux distros, one after the other, expressionless, unmoving, pausing only to tell you that there's a dot missing on one of the lower-case I's in the Turkish version on Ubuntu Linux.
