Have you ever sat down and thought up some brilliant thing, then realized, “Why bother?” Today during an interview, a candidate related a question he was asked about how he’d implement a particular feature. To me, the feature (it’s not important what the feature was) sounded cool – just the kind of thing that Tuscany should take on. But the candidate’s first question was, “Why bother?” He had a solid defense of why the feature was basically silly if not stupid. Sexy, yes. But also silly.

I mean, who really need an operating system with integrated GUI?

(Just kidding about that last part.)
