Usability and Software Quality

How can usability and software quality be unrelated? They can only be unrelated when it is someone other than an applications users who are doing the rating. An unusable program is--and this is taking the definitions literally--useless. Some of experts said that they are mostly unrelated and some of them said that they are related. I am confused.

According to specification & formar defination both usability & quality is closely related to each other. But according to your point >> "They can only be unrelated when it is someone other than an applications users who are doing the rating. An unusable program is--and this is taking the definitions literally--useless." is can be said as an exception, like all others method has. So, in the base both has quite strong relation. Anyways download & read the following PDF, where you can get some useful references.
