The funny thing is that whoever buys a car, a drill, a mobile phone, 
whatever, knows very well that what is visible doesn't tell what's 
inside, how reliable it is, and so on, and looks for expert advice. A 
lot of publishers make money printing magazines which provide a better 
insight on cars, cameras, phones etc. etc.
Nonetheless, although everybody stumbles every day in the pitfalls of 
badly written software, it appears that very few apply to buying 
software the same kind of approach. :-(
