Design goals

This page contains information on my design philosophy, about the ideas and opinions behind my design decisions.

My top 5 design goals.

  1. Small
  2. Fast
  3. Simple
  4. Robust
  5. Less is more.

Your benefits.

  1. Run the program from anywhere you like.
    • You donít have to install the software to run it.
    • Just copy it wherever you like and run it from there.
       
  2. Take your preferences with you when you move.
    • You donít have to set your preferences everytime you change computers.
       
  3. Everything is contained in one file.
    • You donít have to worry about missing files.
    • You donít have to worry about conflicting DLLs.
       
  4. Minimal system requirements.
    • You donít have to install runtime libraries or a large framework first.
    • You donít have to worry about service packs.
       
  5. Simple programs are easier to understand and learn.
    • You donít have to read a manual.
       
  6. ĎThe bare neccessitiesí are usually good enough.
    • You donít have to pay for Ďbells and whistlesí you donít need anyway.
    • Smaller programs contain less bugs.
