*Rant mode on*

Without referencing to the actual product, I'd like to get something off my chest. Just now I read about the new release of an application with some trivial function. The release information states that tons of effort has gone into the development process.. That doesn't change a thing to the fact that it's still a very trivial application. Worse, literally hundreds (if not thousands) of applications alike have been developed over the years, in all kinds of programming languages.

Yes, I know people normally don't use your weapon of choice to develop something the X way and it is somehow cool you did that.. but on the other hand it's plain stupid. Yes, you can use a microwave oven to open a window by throwing it through the window pane but there probably is a handle you can use? Millions of people have used the handle and it's still the normal way to open the window..

*Rand mode off* Aaah, that felt good :)
