Above all, *readable* code, because otherwise someone changes something,
and inadvertently breaks machines that they don't have to test on.
Which then results in a crappy user experience because the same config
they are used to useing doesn't work anymore on the latest 'stable'
This *still* happens a lot for my MTX, but it's gotten a lot better
If better functionality for the user is your goal, you can't achieve it by
designing code around that goal. (Unless, of course, you're Apple computer
and have large resources for QA and testing, and design the hardware
