Matt Mullenweg on why companies need to keep releasing newer 'not so perfect' versions of their products.

In his recent blog post, Matt Mullenweg, entrepreneur and founding developer of WordPress, says that companies should not be afraid of releasing future versions of their products in the market even if they are not ‘perfect.' He adds that several products simply lies in the R&D labs as companies feel they should not hit the market until they have fixed all the bugs, which only leads to more delays and the real risk of competition getting one up on them. Instead, he says, they should simply release their products even with a few known flaws, provided they have already started working on their next, newly improved versions.
