-Note that Murphy'​s law also applies to every chunk of code. According to the law the programmer will make mistakes while implementing the system. So it is better to implement a simple design, as this will have fewer possibilities to make implementation mistakes. Furthermore code is maintained. Bugfixes will be necessary present functionality will be changed and enhanced, so every piece of code will potentially be touched in future. So a design is better the fewer possibilities there are to introduce faults while doing maintenance work.+Note that Murphy'​s law also applies to every chunk of code.
