Suffering from Featuritis

Recently our users (you guessed it right, users) started at evaluating piece of application to fill a gap in our business needs. In the process, after they liked a system they asked me to look at it. The system have a bunch of frameworks written in Java but only runs on windows!

Why does people do this things in a vacuum? People like the fact that systems offer many features beyond their needs. It seems the primary driver for evaluation is Fear. Fear of being perceived as having fewer features than competitors. Fear that build will take forever and we won't be viewed as complete. Fear that the most features wins and when needs come we won't be ready. Non-experts want a Universal application. Users eventually know for them to Rule, they need to customize the general purpose application. What if instead of tones of features, we concentrate on making the application much easier to use with fewer features?

At least, I'll be satisfied to know if a java based application could complies with the Java specification on running on multiple platform (that is the premise of Java, isn't it).

There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
It gets down to select a proper companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the profit with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

Ask the help of your floral designer in choosing what other colors would match your theme colors. It breeds the power of the mind, thus breeding many Gemini to be thinkers and communicators. The meat is drained of any excess marinade and hung to dry. [URL= ]citrullines[/URL] This provides a both relatable and unimaginably amazing setting for the story. The 3DS has more powerful graphics and better communication abilities and the much lighter DS just cannot compete against the 3DS.
