Microservices is a fad and a poorly named one at that. SOLID principles and loose couple are a foundation for long term design.

Poorly named? I happen to think microservices succinctly describes what they are: small services each focused on a single task or area, and assembled together to form a whole system.

I think that's the point OP is trying to make - in real world "micro" services are not in many cases small.
