IM a die hard fan of KISS (in both forms) ...

Having said that, its really difficult (politically) to be as simple as it could... As it seems software development, for the business run by other people (some of whom have never developed any software), is a dependent process... Honestly many times it becomes a matter of daily bread too for many.

I have felt it several times ... The spearheads are mostly dictating this is what they want... without any consideration for simplicity, maintainability, testability and productivity .. Sadly people are mostly jumping with 'Get it done, FAST, with what little we have' ... I have also warned them to stay close of the KISS model .. and they got convinced that the more complex it gets the more better it is .. and then see such projects fall on the face (sometimes breaking all teeth)

Sorry for being a little lengthy .. but the word actually brought in a lot of feelings
