Am I the only one who thinks that “enterprise” when used in conjunction with software can mean any and all of the following:
* user un-friendly
* maintenance nightmare
* developer un-friendly (third-party and originating developers alike)
Maybe I’ve been using Linux/BSD and OS X for too long, but I want cheap, simple, user-friendly apps, that I and other developers can string together to create powerful domain-specific tools.
So the next time someone asks if a piece of software is “enterprise,” ask yourself: Is that a good thing?
Your post reminded me of this:
That’s a great link!
I should write a crap-detector-filter. You punch in the URL of a product’s description and it returns a CrapScore(tm) for that product.
Well, I’ve been meaning to play with any/all of the following: [CherryPy](http://www.cherrypy.org/), [mod_python](http://www.modpython.org/) and [Rails](http://www.rubyonrails.org/), maybe that’d be a good starter project, should be simple enough.
Thanks for the idea Adrian!
