Yeah, I read the article - they tried to fix bad hardware with software, and failed. Earlier articles on the subject tried to lay the blame at the feet of the programmers, but I (and every developer here) knew it was bullsh*t from the start.

0) Boeing screwed up the aerodynamics because they were trying to avoid the "not a 737 anymore" problem, because IT COST LESS MONEY.
1) Boeing decided to fix it with software, because it COST LESS MONEY
2) They outsourced the software development to India, because it COST LESS MONEY
3) All the things that happened as a result of or that caused the three items above were done to REDUCE COST TO BOEING.
4) Money over safety - same sh*t, different day.
