  Writing software is actually quite easy. Writing good software is relatively
harder, but still easy. Writing software to a programmer is like painting to a
painter. Shipping software is an incredibly complicated task. It’s like getting
a stadium full of babies to all have clean diapers at the same time with only
one or two people to do the work. As soon as you fix one thing, you discover
more crap. The process stinks and you’ll never reach the end. Those who do it
either by printing a CD, uploading a binary, or pushing out changes to a tier of
web servers know what I’m talking about.
