You've hit the nail on the head. Someone somewhere decided that it was ok 
to be less than perfect, and they have managed to convince the rest of the 
world. It's ok to have to reboot your 95 box. It's ok to have a web site 
that doesn't quite work if you have the wrong version of Netscape or IE. 
It's ok to have write a new version of Word that can barely talk to older 
versions. It's ok to have my ISP disconnect me during a download. It's 
ok.... well you get the point.

I can't remember the last time it was ok that the books didn't balance, or 
it was ok that we couldn't find that last 5 million in inventory. Hmmm, 
maybe it's just me, but the 400 community seems to hold itself to a higher 
standard.

NT is solid?  when there is a software error, I get  a window that
says OK.  I guess that has convinced a number of people that it's OK
to have things stop working without explanation.

People are writing native apps,  true, but when you install
that software or an upgrade the last step is usually, reboot, great
solution.

Herd mentality at work or what?
