Fast forward to the present. UX is the foundation of product design
Then: I don’t care how it looks, just ship it! Now: Ship quality or your product is dead.

In both this post and the previous post you emphasized that the product has to be reliable: “you can’t ship trash”. I completely agree.

In my view the hierarchy is: reliability, core features and user interface. It doesn’t matter how cool your product looks if the core features and reliability are not there. Much as I love beautiful design, I will always trade beautiful design for reliability and core features.

Rather than a cool user interface (or user experience) it’s better to have something that’s blazingly obviously. For example, rather than a “hamburger” menu button, a button labeled “menu”.

For what it’s worth, here’s my take on the Minimum Viable Product.
