Agile vs. waterfall ?!

[This post in the Software Craftsmanship Google Group (*) has cost me being banned from the group: I am reposting it here to denounce how compromised the situation is and to keep the discussion open.]

Agile vs. waterfall is another one we should clearly stand against: it's just the marketing of a false dichotomy, but it is as wrong and a damage as it can be because it promotes massive misconceptions not only about the software process but about the very state of the art.

Rather than setting up primary schools on the art of tying shoelaces, we'd better focus on getting the basics straight.
