How do you get people (customers, bosses, etc._ to prioritize things like bug reports as anything other than "highest"?
Simple. Put a dollar tag on every fix, ie. estimates. Ask "is this fix more important than getting foo done in time?".
The last person who suggested they reduce prices to be competitive was beaten to death by the Duopoly of Coles/Myer and Woolsworth. Then the corpse was kicked by Gerry Harvey (who seems to enjoy beating dead horses).
So a horse suggested that retailers should reduce prices? Australia is stranger than I thought.
* I hate that myth. Every time I hear it from someone, I want to say, "Well, maybe you're not using that 90%, but I sure as shit am." Probably comes from the proportion of the brain tissue comprised of glial cells.

An antivirus company saying that Windows in insecure would be like BP saying that we should all switch to solar power and stop using oil.
Actually, BP probably wouldn't mind. Despite the conspiracy theories, "oil" companies don't hate alternative energy sources - they're actually large investors in wind, solar, etc.. After all, they're not in it for the oil, they're in it for the money. When solar starts getting big(ger), it's mostly the same cats who will profit. Oil just happens to be easily exploitable at the time.
