"Maintenance is the work of the caring"
Great #quote in this HN thread:
> Maintainability is the feature of unreliable equipment.
Not quite. The whole purpose of maintenance is to increase the longevity of a product by making small, cheap, tweaks to complex parts that can fail due to wear and tear.
Everything lasts longer if you maintain it. A good knife, a high performance vehicle, a good pair of shoes, a couch, etc ...
I don't know of any product that is "as good as new" after years of use. Watches, even spoons, aren't as shiny as they were when you bought them for the first time.
Maintenance is the work of the caring.
Too many are accepting of the disposable society, which is led by our "smartphone" usage.
