Unix versus Microsoft philosophies

“If Unix development philosophy is small pieces loosely joined, Microsoft's philosophy is big chunks tighly coupled.” (Jason Kottke)

This sentence must be read as an echo of Small Pieces Loosely Joined { a unified theory of the web } from David Weinberger.
This is a clever remark ; however I think Microsoft's philosophy is more based on a Russian nesting dolls philosophy...

(From "": “Larry Ellison in a dream world”)
