There are many sizeable famous software companies with three things in common. 1- Mediocre products that somehow their customers think are really good. 2- Rich top executives that never use their own products and are wholly disconnected from the customer experience. 3- Software engineers who want to keep high-paying jobs don't question or comment on anything the wealthy top executives believe about the company product, customers, or competition. It's systemic in the software industry.

Just one question: did they forget to write code to make complete bodies?
