Bad software is the latter-day descendant of Henry Ford's mythical paint-chart – you can do anything you like, as long as it's what the software thinks it's what you ought to want to do. Good software is like seven-league boots or a coat of invisibility – you're the one who knows what you want to achieve, and the artefact unobtrusively enables you.
