I expected to hate the article, but no. Truth was found here.

I've been at this 20 years now. It is very frustrating how many times you see the same ideas being recreated every couple of years. Fresh branding, maybe even different to code, but the fundamental trade-offs are only marginally different. Which will lead to its eventual replacement by the next one.

And things that make truly different trade-offs, most people do not want to try because it is too different from what they are used to. :)

Could also be seen as: we like playing with legos, not necessarily building things. As I get older I'd rather just build things.
