when you think about it, the idea that software should scale is actually really weird. "sure this garden is nice, but how nice can it be if it doesn't grow to cover the entire surface of the earth?"

@aparrish Depends on what you mean by "scale".

Scale along what metric? Scale depending on what metric?

@drq @aparrish well, the tech industry use of the word "scale" is similarly devoid of meaning. So, the point stands.

@rysiek @drq @aparrish as in my other comment, it used to default to "scale with user/usages". Now it defaults to hardware, either cores or machines.

It's a little sad, really, that this default has shifted.
