Excel Bug Fix Postponed

It’s Labour Day, and I’m doing as little labour as possible, so this posting will be very short.
In the OneNote Testing blog, John Guin describes why a bug in the Solver sample workbook (solvsamp.xls) wasn’t considered “ship stopping” in the Office 97 release. Don’t worry, it’s fixed now, so you won’t accidentally print 12334 copies of the worksheet.
Obviously this is old news, but it’s interesting to see how the decision was made to postpone the fix.
