Is this the business model of IT industry?
I am not sure. However from my previous experience, there is some truth in this comic.
Developing complex software is inherently expensive. Quality software is even more expensive. Without budget, rapid development is the only feasible choice. If the market reaction is good, more fund can be poured into the project to enhance and fix it.
Nevertheless, there is a question: is the prototype built as “big ball of mud” or skeleton with pluggable implementation?
