Less User Configurations

When designing software, there is a rule:

Do NOT let user see much of its configurations.

That is to say, make the software simpler, user may feel more comfortable. And if you let user configure too much, you won’t get better user experience but worse software maintenance.

There is another say:

Do NOT add new functions until strongly-required by majority.

If new functions or new configurations are added, it will require much more energies to decide whether to remove them or not!

Keep everything simpler, and have a happier life.
