Hating on simplicity: A developer's passion?

It’s common to see talented engineers shit on egalitarian software solutions only because they’re not perfect for them.

That mentality is both socially and technically toxic in a larger successful company that writes enduring software.

There’s a great benefit + beauty in having a very simple system that’s easy to replicate and update—easy to propagate technically & socially—but it’s tough to love simplicity with a belief system that rewards complexity.
