when you think about it, the idea that software should scale is actually really weird. "sure this garden is nice, but how nice can it be if it doesn't grow to cover the entire surface of the earth?"

@aparrish IMHO it's false to compare physical with immaterial.

Moreover, scalability from my point of view is to extend the software to solve a problem the original author not even imagine for. Serving more users is just a subset.

When the robustness, reliability, stability, and simplicity is software craft, the scalability and wording is software art.
