Of course new versions of IE, or any significant software product will show the same "curve" Strauss is talking about. The alternative is that your new versions provide the same or less functionality at greater cost - who would buy that? Larger (more powerful, more complete) products have more bugs. Without a "Silver Bullet" breakthrough that will remain the case forever.

I've worked on projects that used the "follow the curve" metric Strauss describes. They ship just as buggy as other projects, but people learn not to file bugs, because to do so delays ship. Great - now we don't even know where the bugs are!
