quick, cheap, good: pick 2

[ #32459 ]

Here is something provocative I found, provoked by chromatic, at http://use.perl.org/~chromatic/journal/32416, who had been provoked by a #perl6 comment about slow parrot development.

DeMorganized, 'Quick, cheap, good: pick two' becomes, 'Late, over-budget, no good: pick one.'

Or, 'We don't need no stinking deadlines.'

The other point of view is, 'Release early, release often.'

'Quick, cheap, good: pick two,' can be paraphrased as, 'Slow and steady wins the race.'

The opposite point of view is, 'By fits and starts, as the hog pisseth,' which I found in a dictionary of Japanese proverbs, where it is given as the English equivalent of 'Usagi no fun,' literally, rabbit droppings.
