Regarding my take on XP and Unit Testing, you're preaching to the choir!

What I'm sharing with you guys is based on what I've seen on *many* projects.

Wooks, here is what I meant:

%80 of developers don't know why unit tests exist, don't trust them,
won't do them.
%80 of managers don't know why unit tests exist.
Inevitably "issues" occur. Developers cite the unit tests as being
"useless", which becomes the justification for no longer maintaining

That is the norm.
