Just how do they write Photoshop?

I can't take much of the credit for writing Adobe edits the development cycle - what I did was think that what Russell told me about the switch in development style (to an incremental, bug-delimited method) was worth writing about, persuade my editor of the same thing, ask Russell about what I thought was interesting and then see where it went. I find it fascinating to see behind the scenes, to understand the process of how people having ideas turns into features thousands of people use everyday. This one is particularly interesting because Russell has joined in the reader discussion too... Now that's my favourite kind of interview subject ;-)
