Are Features The Enemy?

The Software Conspiracy:

If a computer magazine publishes a roundup of word processors, the central piece of that article will be the “feature matrix,” a table showing what word processing programs have which features. With just a glance, the reader can quickly see which word processors have the richest sets of features, and which have the least features.

The next time I write a review of something, I’m going to make a feature matrix that looks like this:

 Windows  Macintosh  Linux
Did the jobXXx
I liked it XX
Would not kill development team if I met them XX
