I think people here are taking him out of context. When he says a program should be finished at 1.0, he means that it should be bug free, especially as not so long after, he uses the Mozart / Beethoven comparison.

Altogether a very insightful video, I see value in his interview since today's programmers tend to have more of a 'code first, think later' mindset these days, myself included at times.

I don't like his use of the word "elegance" in programming - elegance is very much dependent upon one's personal view of what elegant code is.
