Obese software

Researchers Fight Computer 'Obesity' Crisis

I like this article - so true!

For reference, here are Lehman's Laws

Lehman's Laws of Software Evolution

Prof. Meir M. Lehman, who worked at Imperial College, University of London from 1972 to 2002, and his colleagues, have identified a set of behaviours in the evolution of proprietary software. These behaviours (or observations) are known as Lehman's Laws, and there are eight of them :
1. Continuing Change
2. Increasing Complexity
3. Large Program Evolution
4. Invariant Work-Rate
5. Conservation of Familiarity
6. Continuing Growth
7. Declining Quality
8. Feedback System
