[Update]

d2leddy added "software quality" as well, so that gives us a battalion of 4 now. =)

The chrysanthemum takes the hard edge off the pu-erh. =)

You can make that four people--I don't explicitly state it in my interests list, but 1) subsume it under Extreme Programming, and 2) think I ought to include it now. So I'm off to do that.

It is sad. I have a post about software quality half baked right now. It has been simmering for several months now, given our customers' recent behavior in regard to the software we are developing. This behavior leads me to believe that while users say they want "quality", their behavior says otherwise. I don't know if the sorry Microsoft model trained the population, or if Microsoft created their business model to correspond with how customers drive the market, or if to some degree a dialectic is working in there.

Regardless, I'm considering abandoning our intensive and effective QA and adopting the MS way because of customer behavior which disregards the 1) the high quality, bug-free software we gave them, and 2) their expressed pleasure with this software and its bug-free, high quality nature.

Yay! We have a whole battalion of four people =)

I think it's better listed separately, just because Extreme Programming done badly does not make quality software. Also on the flip side, you can make very good quality software without Extreme Programming.

Users don't care about "quality" per se. They only want to get their work done. Generally, a good quality product will let users get their work done well, but it just won't be ready by yesterday, for free and flawless, like they want it. =)
