Too many testers?

Wow.  I never thought I'd see a statement so outrageous.  Someone, in this case Microsoft, has too many testers?  Can this be true?  Is this why Windows has fix after fix every week because their testing is so good because they have enough testers that they can get rid of excess testers? 

I can't believe that is even remotely true.  Most organizations suffer from having not enough testers.  This is why applications deployed in production suffer.  Something had to be cut out of the test plan because they either couldn't test something or didn't have the time/people. 

A technology enterprise should not cut technical folks out of their organization.
