The airlines might, but Boeing and Airbus don't.
They model and test and verify. Sometimes, they
don't find the unknown unknowns and a fly by
wire flies it into the tarmac. But less and
less these days because they have systems that
learn from memory and very seldom is an airliner
built from scratch.
Was RSS built from scratch? What changes did
you make that resulted in all of the evil
Googled references I've been seeing? Were these
changes something you decided to do from
scratch, or were they based on your analysis of
the experience? As you say, you are not a newbie.

Hey get over yourself Mike -- I'm anything but a newbie programmer.
Here's the deal, someone has to go first. We could have sat around and
debated it for two years, or instead taken a chance, watched carefully, and
trust that if we had to do some quick thinking our minds were up to it. It
turned out that way. We got it done in a few hours instead of a few years.
I make that kind of bet every day. And if you think the airlines don't,
check it out, they do. That's how the world works my dear friend Mike.
