Error Codes vs. Exceptions

An Enteraining read about Exceptions vs Error Codes in applications programming, some bad language, plenty of analogies [don't know if that if the correct spelling :)] but a good read!
"Very little software really gets error handling right. Even many critical, backend server systems tend to break under heavy loads. And the vast majority of end-user applications handle errors gracefully only for the most well understood, commonly encountered conditions, but very poorly for most other conditions."
