This is as rediculous a statement as saying consultants intentionally put bugs 
in their code for job security! Speaking as a software vendor, I can tell you 
we loose money on any bug found in our software. We have to fix them for free, 
cause that is the right thing to do.

I think you're completely off base with this one Jim. Don't paint all software 
vendors with the same brush.

If you have buggy software, the word gets out and you don't get the sales. Most 
sales come from word of mouth advertising from existing customers. You don't 
get that if they're unhappy with bugs in their software.
