    Error codes would be useful if software companies would tell end users in plain English what is wrong so they can be fixed.

    It would save time tracking them down for a solution.

    It would mean people with social skills writing code - that does not work. Writing code is essentially a very socially challenged activity. The willingness to do that repetitively requires a certain imbalance of emotions, hence code errors that read like an alien spaceship diet manifesto.

    P.S. Most of the time, they don't know themselves.
