Nice post! I'm definitely guilty of this too. I've begun to hate the term "legacy code" because we're so quick to assume we're going to trash it and rewrite it, when chances are that's not the best move for the business. When I hear myself or someone else refer to something as legacy code with an eyeroll, I have this little voice in my head that says, "You mean that code that's solving a business problem in production?" Such a tough habit to get past...
