This is one of the best features i’ve read recently.  All product design is based around the product doing what you need it to.  Other people might need it to do other things.  If you give in to everybody, you make your product impossible to use for everybody.  If you are strong and decide to focus your product on a particular type of user, or split it into different products, then users are happier.  In the situation that the product has been allow to grow with every request, the product will be obese with features and of little use to anybody.  Read Lukas Mathis full article: click here

Great post, interesting thought, so many products are full of usability issues with features that noone ever uses. They should focus on a core feature set that works!
