Throwing hardware at the problem

Recently, Jeff Atwood posted the following article talking about throwing hardware at a programming problem. I have to say, I agree as I’m sure many others do as well. One thing that you have to realize as a manager is the talent that you have on staff. If you happen to have 3 rookie programmers, there is a good chance that throwing hardware will not fix the issue. It will only disguise it for a while longer until you add enough users on the system that it rears its ugly head again.
