Just Costs You Double

by chromatic

Remember Andy Lester's rant about Can't You Just...?. There aren't often easy answers in any field.

I really like what Chris Cummer had to say in a comment on "All I Need is a Programmer":

Every time you use "just" to describe a feature or a process it tells me you've made a gross assumption about what I'll need to do.

(Of particular amusement is when non-contributors tell volunteers what to do in free software projects.)
