I think a corollary of Albert Einstein's aphorism regarding theories
applies here: "Features should be as simple as possible, but no
"Perfection is Achieved Not When There Is Nothing More to Add, But When There Is Nothing Left to Take Away" Antoine de Saint-Exupery

There are two kinds of people in this world.  Those that think that adding more is better (more is more approach), and those that think the complete opposite (less is more approach).  The second type is usually associated with minimalistic philosophy and approach to life.  I believe Ken and the team were the masters of minimalism.

Today the only current OS that I can think of that still adores this minimalistic approach is probably only OpenBSD.  Even its installer is as minimal as you can get... I really like it.

I'm not so sure about that. It's installer is minimal, but there's still lots of bloat in it's kernel...
