Complexity isn't that simple. :-)
o Lots of little components that might be
completely debugged but when used in
combination produce the wrong output.
o One big component that produces the
right output but no one knows why.
The issue is competence, not philosophy.

"The basics are these: Complexity is wasteful, stressful, and expensive;
simplicity is efficient, cost-effective, and productive. That should be a
compelling enough business case for anyone using or selling computer
technology. Just ask David Gelernter--if he ever gets his PC to work right."
