      The tester is not entirely liable for quality. That is the occupation of the whole team. I think that part of the reason its simple for teams to get into this groupthink about bugs is because the testers are marginalized into the outskirts and looked at as a impediment more than a help to the team — i.e. a roadblock for getting out features that the team genuinely wants to release. If a bug like that lived, the feature should never have been published, period. If you have so many bugs that you are commonly reaching these types of conclusions, it paints a picture that you’re trying to make too many features at the same time. Doing this has the appearance of working quicker, but is in reality decelerating you down – as represented by the effort of release rollbacks, patches, bug management.

        Some good words and feedback. Do you know they have a fully supported version called Cross Over? This is just their free version. So, it’s usually buggy and not “fully supported” as they say. Thanks for the feedback. Take care.
