Why software is so bad...

From the article titled "Why software is so bad..." on msnbc.com. This is one of the best articles I've read in a long time.
In the last 15 years alone, software defects have wrecked a satellite launch, delayed an airport opening for a year, destroyed a Mars mission, killed four Marines in a helicopter crash, induced a U.S. Navy ship to destroy a civilian airliner, and shut down ambulance systems in London, leading to as many as 30 deaths.
