Isn't it the truth...
Like this one did for me.
How many times have I seen a complex, convoluted, hardly (or not at all) working bit of software - software that does just one, maybe two things - but is capable of being the OS, the database, and every program ever written if necessary. Just in case.
I guess that is why I'm still a Unix fan after all of these years. A big collection of very very specific tools that can be used together to do pretty much anything.
Although - there are two sides to every coin I guess... Sometimes (not often) - simple can be wrong too. It depends.
