Nothingness. ;)

Oh wait... logical... I'd have to say something that doesn't require thought to accomplish.

I think tofuman80 and stinger02 have the best definitions. I would have said, "the most efficient functional design".

For those of you defining the word by using the word (simple) or the opposite word (complex), those are terrible definitions! >_<
