"At least it works, you might say. Well, bigger doesn’t imply better. Bigger means someone has lost control. Bigger means we don’t know what’s going on. Bigger means complexity tax, performance tax, reliability tax."

@sir I think the article is a great thing and i agree with the part of having almost no limitation promotes lazyness.
