      We've had so much fun with the "good design" or "safe design" question. I thought I'd pose this question of my own.

      Please cast your vote here and discuss. I'm going to sit on the fence again and opt for an equal quality-to-low-cost ratio :D

      Here's a link to a parallel LinkedIn discussion if you want to join in the fun there too!

      This is a bit more difficult there are people out there who can see quality and realise that they have to pay premium for that quality, however I think that the majority want what looks like value for money and will go for a cheaper alternative then bitch about it when it fails to deliver all they expect. So in my opinion a middle ground is desireable with a little more focus on quality.
