"Beyond time constraints imposed by a need to maintain market share there is NO advantage to refactoring any many disadvantages."
Really? So whenever there's a problem in a program, one should rewrite the whole thing? Interesting approach...
"IF you are so certain it was a mistake then you are more than welcome to pick up the old code base and refactor it as a starting point for your own project."
I never said I'm certain it was a mistake. In fact in this very thread I state that I'm not sure at all which strategy (rewrite vs. refactoring) would have been better. I just found the article interesting.
