Cool.  Then feature creep could be compared the current penchant of
congress for passing new, unenforcable, unnecessary and stupid laws.

We could also draw this analogy:

Windows -> do everything centrally and take rights away from the little guy

This is equivalent to the Democrat and neo-conservative approach to life

Linux/Unix -> small tools that do one job well and empower the individual

This would be the equivalent to the Libertarian and traditional
conservative approach to life
