The plague of software explosition

" The plague of software explosition is not a "lax of nature". It is avoidable, and it is the software engineer's task to curtain it. "

" To reduce software complexity by concentrating only on the essentials is a proposal swiftly dismissed as ridiculous in view of customer's love for bells and whistles.
When "everything goes" is the modus operandi, methodologies and discipline are te first casualities."

N. Wirth in A Plea For Lean Software;
Computer, Feb. 1995, p. 64-68
