comment Should organizations penalize developers for the amount of defect reports filed against code they worked on?
You are not really out on a limb here are you? No-one is saying bug rates are not important or shouldn't be used as one part of performance evaluation. The consensus seems to be that there shouldn't be a direct/fixed relationship, that other factors can must be considered. Your programmer (who is outside the SD for bugs) isn't automatically going to get penalised for it, if it turns out there are mitigating factors.

comment Tuple: toople or tuh-ple?
toople != /ˈtjuːp(ə)l/. /ˈtjuːp(ə)l/ is pronounced more like tee-you-pull.

comment Programming with speech recognition for typing instead of the keyboard
@GreenMatt, yeah we know, but it happens. Besides, they should have known better than to go near my PC after they'd been eating chocolate... ;)

I can't afford many things - therefore I find cheaper alternatives or go without. What is more, as a developer, I know that I would be depriving one or more of my peers some of their income.

-1 for for suggesting copying software. Why would one programmer do that to another (the Dragon developers)?

I think you've understood the situation well... my objective is not to definitively document anything; it is to provide a common perspective that will stimulate various types of debate.
