From the latest post in Rico Mariani’s series on the history of Visual Studio
Debt is a great way to think about trade-offs: every time you make a choice that isn’t right in the long term, any short-cut, accumulates some debt. Any bug you choose to defer, that’s debt. Some debt you should write-off, that fix just isn’t happening, some you should address, but always you should be aware that you’ll have to deal with it sooner or later, and it may as well be sooner.
