Software Products Are Not Just Features

It’s easy work to put features in a queue and have developers program away until each feature is coded. It’s hard to make a software product, where fit and quality are also needed to be successful. Ensuring fit with the target users and their goals and working with discipline on the quality attributes of your product are not queued items.

There’s a long tail of businesses doing the easy stuff or trying to do the easy stuff faster. There’s really very little competition for businesses that do the hard work well.
