both are important phases in the software development lifecycle.
I disagree, I am sure most people who work in QA would quit if they were offered a development role. I know people who would and they openly admit that they use it to try to get into development. Its seems like a second class role for those not good enough to get into development. For the majority, QA is boring, tedious and repetitive. I don't blame them for wanting to change.
