Good enough, or barely working, is better

It is fascinating to read a snippet like this: the function hashing mechanism was strlen().

Yet PHP became ubiquitous.

Often "good enough", or even "barely working", trumps ... well, everything else, I guess?

Or rather, something else - like becoming the module installed everywhere makes the difference.

Perl had the same position in the short era just before PHP, when everything was CGI-scripts.
