  1. Great article. I agree in theory that as a developer I’d be very proud to put out a “complete, done” product that people would use for decades. That also entails a few things that seem hard to achieve in today’s environment: 1) the enormous amount of research and development required to make sure the product you deliver meets all the requirements of the majority of your users, and, 2) the buy in from your company to spend the time required (on the planning, and R&D, testing, etc.) to release a product that can stand the test of time without anything more than minor bug patches released in the future. Seems like that’d be a unicorn (and really fun to work for) company. For personal projects, my wanting it to be good enough to last before releasing is what keeps my “always in progress” shelf full. 3) And I guess, as you mentioned, I think it’s because software can change that users expect it to, even if it was good enough at the time. If one part of our lives wasn’t changing so rapidly, maybe we wouldn’t feel the need to look for the things to hold onto that don’t (books, records, etc.). Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  4. Great article. I have read it with a lot of interest altough I disagree in some topics, specially in the way the physical things (classical engineering) and software are being comparated. I think most problems of the called “Software crisis” are due the fact of the software requirements change more rapidly and it’s not possible to take in mind in the analysis but I agree about the sensation of “done” things like old fashioned games like the ones of LucasArts. (Sorry for my english)
