Ayende’s Razor

This is a response to a comment on another post:

Oren, in all seriousness, I thought that problems that were "(a) complex, (b) hard to understand (c) hard to optimize" were the kinds that folks like you and I get paid to solve...

Given two solutions that match the requirements of the problem, the simpler one is the better.

Variations on Occam's Razor pretty much drive every development and troubleshooting decision I make (within reason of course).

That's fun, that's a strange perception.

At least, it is not applicable for a software provider.
