Excellent quote from Linus Torvalds. I know I'm guilty of "overdesigning" at times so I made this wallpaper to remind myself to keep things simple.

This is how you should approach most of the issues you face in life. You can't do it all at once, just get something good and small going and work from there.

Four years later, and you probably aren't even on dA anymore, but I really like this quote, too. He's humble about it, but he really gets what software development is about.

Hmmm. Sure, it sounds nice in principle, but considering I have worked with programmers who though like that, and hated every minute of supporting/justifying the code they were writing, take a jaded sysad/sysop's opinion:

The philosophy above can lead to bad things happening!

That is very clever indeed. It should be up on every programming lab in the world.
