Ethical Treatment of Software
 

SEVEN SOFTWARE COMPANIES ADDED TO "WATCH LIST"

New York -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Software (PETS) announced today that seven more software companies have been added to the group's "watch list" of companies that regularly practice software testing.

"There is no need for software to be mistreated in this way so that companies like these can market new products," said Ken Granola, spokesperson for PETS. "Alternative methods of testing these products are available."

According to PETS, these companies force software to undergo lengthy and arduous tests, often without rest, for hours or days at a time. Employees are assigned to "break" the software by any means necessary, and inside sources report that they often joke about "torturing" the software.

It's no joke, said Granola. Innocent programs, from the day they are compiled, are cooped up in tiny rooms and crashed for hours on end. They spend their whole lives on dirty, ill-maintained computers, and are unceremoniously deleted when they're not needed anymore.

Granola said the software is kept in unsanitary conditions and is infested with bugs.

We know alternatives to this horror exists, He said, citing industry giant Microsoft Corporation as a company that has become extremely successful without resorting to software testing.
