Less is more

Software development has always a kind of inflation:
  • More functions
  • More posibilities
  • More colors
  • More memory
Newer versions of a software is allways more complicated, not easier.
I think that is not in all cases the right principle.
I am rather convinced that the right principle of development is to do as much as possible automatic and all the user have to do must be intuitive.

Good Software

Shall a god software be defined over
- have to..
- have not to... ?
I can imagine docens of "have not to..." but only fews "have to.." over what that is supposed to do, of course.

I recommend to read "Getting real". I enjoyed this book a lot :-)
