>that ideal software development is just a continuous production

This ! Can't agree more... Scrum always made me feel like a production-line-worker making shoes... No craft nor space to discovery/explore problem solving. Urg and all those damn meetings and pulling numbers out of thin air ! What a waste of time those meetings were !

One think I havent read being mentioned on this thread is how Scrum discrete sprint units allow the dev team to focus in a task for some time.

I have been in both "sides" of scrum (dev and manager) and it is good not to have objectives changed every days. As a manager I even have had to split a scrum team in two (scrum and kanban) to maintain devs sanity.

Kanban is my preferred PMing process but only if there are defined "cutout" periods to perform releases or a CI/CD cycle.
