Among the numerous responses to the Joel's controversial text[^], I like this one[^] the best. Some quotes:
 
"i've said it before, @jbogard : never take software advice from a bug tracking system salesman"
 
And a more serious one that IMHO sums it up:
 
"The nasty truth about misapplying duct tape solutions in serious software development is that the duct tape solution ends up creating unnecessary additional complexity because it doesn’t address the whole problem, just the symptoms. This isn’t unique to software development, but if duct tape solutions are used to achieve short term gains, then future solutions are built on a foundation of duct tape instead of some sound organizational method."
