Worse is Better

Worse is Better, Perfect is the Enemy of Good, and The Cathedral and the Bazaar. Lots of different ways to think about the same thing. There's the "Right Thing"™️ and the New Jersey approach. Is there a correct answer? If so, which is correct? Is it situational? If it's situational, what are the situations? This one is so deep that the author of the original Worse is Better paper spent the next 10+ years developing a second persona and arguing with himself about it and still hasn't come to a conclusion.
