Keep it simple to make it complex

I think it is safe to say say almost everybody that have worked in the software industry for some year have come across the challenge of keeping a design simple, so interesting to read what  John Gall says about this topic:

“A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. The inverse proposition also appears to be true: A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be made to work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system.”

John Gruber looks in a blog post at the iPhone in the light of the quote above, interesting observations:http://daringfireball.net/2009/04/complex
