Today is the World Usability Day 2007 and I'd like to encourage everyone to look into it especially of course the presentations given in the MS Conference Center throughout the day which are available online. So, why do I think this is important and why did I tag this post as a QA post? Because if you are serious about shipping high quality software you have to care about the user experience (UX). You can ship a virtually bug-free product which is mostly worthless at the same time because of poor usability. I don't suggest that QA should take over UX. But I firmly believe that one of the responsibilities of QA is to promote the idea of and need for UX activities throughout the product development cycle.
