Money quote: “Reliability is valued far more than new features”

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/09/06

Remember:

  • Money quote: “Reliability is valued far more than new features”
  • Here’s the thing: As soon as your device is on a network, “stasis == reliability” is false.

There’s really no point in attempting to “but” or “what if” this – it’s just wrong. Sadly, while uptake of networking is rapidly approaching 100%, understanding of this point is still hovering near zero.
