Softer Side of Software

Most of the developers I work with are geeks. Vocabularies are large, and jokes about NFS are common. And yet when we talk about the product, the actual language is interesting:
  • "I feel like the product...."
  • "It just doesn't look right..."
  • "It feels more stable..."
  • "Sure, it feels faster...."
  • "I feel like the writes are faster than the reads."
For a bunch of math-oriented geeks, we're sure using a lot of fuzzy words!

The only real takeaway I have here is noticing again that it doesn't matter so much what empirical evidence you have. How people feel about the product still trumps everything else!
