Re: Capitalism at its best
Car theives used to believe that.
When talking to "one of the community" when looking for my stolen car during Horse Fair Week, the response was, "Well, it was insured, wasn't it ?"

It's standard practice in firmware code, where it's possible to brick a device, to flag a new download as "on trial". Once processing the new file has been deemed successful, it's marked as being OK.
On a subsequent boot, downloads still marked as On trial are deemed faulty, and to be ignored from then on.
I worked at Ubiquisys in its early days, ten people or so in a Regus office.
There was definitely version control (Subversion) and unit+integration+system testing. Of course, product versioning is possibly a different matter.
So what happened in the later years, after my one-year stint, I don't know.
