I do feel we tend to copycat what works for other companies and extrapolate to our own use case, and here's the catch, most of us don't need the scalability serverless provides, but all of us using serverless will pay the upfront cost of service orchestration, and reduced developer experience.

Yeah, it's totally underestimated how many millions request ywe can handle a day with even a medium sized EC2 instance or similar, and the majority of us will never need more than that.
