Hmm... this kind of validates my theory that cleaning up is a good thing.

But than, all people are different... I found that I just can not think when the thing I am starting with is not beautiful.

Don't we actually build the future using the past? So if the past sucks deeply (i.e. it is worse than we already learned 
how to do things), how can we ever invent the future? Wouldn't we waste resoures in a big way doing it this way?

Others might argue that I am just not intelligent enough to deal with complexity... :-) but I think that complexity is non-linear and especially
the intelligent (or when we look at companies those with lots of resources in terms of money) tend to underestimate it.
