I appreciate this WordPress philosophy overview. More products should be built with these principles in mind:

Works with little configuration and setup
Designed for the majority
Makes decisions, not options
Clean, lean and mean
Strives for simplicity


@markosaric Sounds like elementary's guidelines:

What design is not
* Design is not vaneer
* Design is not subjective
* Avoid feature bloat
* Think in modules
Accessable Configuration
* Build for the out-of-the-box experience
* Ask the operating system
* Is it really about accessability?
* When you absolutely have to
Minimal documentation
* Use understandable copy.

Rest are *more* specific to their framework...
