But if a beta-test is your sole test routine, it's not going to test
thoroughly. It will miss obscure features, boundary conditions, and
probably annoy the hell out of users.

A thorough checklist will include every feature, alone and in
combination - it will also be impossible to do on most budgets.
I never said 'simple' checklist.. did I? :)
