"If you're embarrassed by the first version of your product (i.e. suppose it's buggy, ..."

A first release must not be buggy. But it can have a limited set of functionality. Imho, the real art of software development is to restrict the initial set of functionality and get that done, as quickly as possible (but not quicker), bug free (sic) and useful.

No, I (sic)ed 'bug free', because this is a goal that may never be achieved. I want to say "try as hard as possible" but did not want to look like I think it actually IS possible.
