All of the people talking as if I had said there were "literally infinite" bugs in a product are missing the point.

No. They understand and they are explaining to YOU where YOU are wrong.

I said, very clearly, that of course the number of bugs is not literally infinite, but I was considering the case where there are so many bugs which can be found for $X worth of effort, that it's unrealistic to find and fix them all in the time frame before the product becomes obsolete anyway.

And that is where you are wrong. YOU are claiming that a very specific HYPOTHETICAL situation is same as the general ACTUAL situation.

Your HYPOTHETICAL situation is 100% divorced from the ACTUAL situation.

In the ACTUAL situation there are a finite number of buffer overflow bugs in any specific program and those buffer overflow bugs can be found and fixed WITHOUT another buffer overflow bug appearing. And it is EASY to find the MAXIMUM number of buffer overflow bugs by searching the source code for every instance of a buffer being used.

Finite AND countable AND fixable.

The fact that there are dozens of people responding as if I had said "literally infinitely many bugs" does not make their point any more valid.

No. They are pointing out that YOU have made that assumption even though YOU keep denying it.

Because once you admit that the number of buffer overflow bugs is finite AND countable then there exists a point where they can ALL be fixed. And you keep denying that that is possible.
