4 pages pdf on programming describes the basic problem with software design

i stumbled upon this document searching for guidelines how object oriented design is implemented.
the first 4 pages describe in a very general manner the problems which emerge when a software goes through too many versions..


in the light of the maxunderground thread, autodesk xbr etc., i think it is a good read if you want to understand why (probably) we are in this situation.

Hmm ... ok so I read it. But not sure I agree with it. Their comment "But then something begins to happen. The software starts to rot" pretty much sums up their opinion. Sure there are difficulties maintaining software as technology continues to change etc. But lets stop for a min and consider the software that we all use. Most of the largest pieces of software such as photoshop, Maya, Max, etc. all still work very well and have been around for years. I this was not the case we wouldn't still use them. In fact I would argue that it is a terrible software team that does not prepare for the problems the article calls "rot". While I understand the writer of the article was trying to make a point. I feel his conclusion was misguided and the whole thing came across as whiny. There were zero solutions offered and in the end felt it was an article I could have lived without.
