I think that the Rugged Software Manifesto has to be a parody.
I am rugged… and more importantly, my code is rugged.
Ok some of the statements are reasonable,
I recognize that software has become a foundation of our modern world.
but overall the whole thing is so over the top that it has to be a parody.
I am rugged, not because it is easy, but because it is necessary… and I am up for the challenge.
