   RE: [xml-dev] The myth of 80/20

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Then the problem becomes if by using that approach, 
you are stuck in the place you get to, 80/20 can 
hose you.  The HTML browser is a good example of 
a cul de sac.  SVG may be another one.

It's an issue of the energy budget of the majority 
of the members, not the feature set of the locale.

Well, the 80/20 rule, while originally thought up by an Italian 
economists who discovered 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of 
the people, has been applied to many other things. In the situation we 
are discussing (?), it is simply that by covering 80% of the some thing 
you get to the place you want. By trying to cover more, you usually 
don't get there.
