The Complexity of Simplicity

Its good to have a small sized dust bin in the kitchen. It forces us to clear the garbage frequently which will in turn keep the place free from odor and flies.

A bit of restriction is good to keep things neat and simple. It may look like a shortcoming initially and people may complain, but they will soon get used to the situation and also realize the advantages.

One way to keep things simple in a product is to not allow users to do a lot of things which may make it complicated. But if you HAVE to give the users the ability to do complex operations, the best way is to hide them and let the users explore only if they need are in need of them.
