Ronny Kolb and Frank van der Linden discuss the pros and cons of software product lines. Kolb writes about the competitive advantages software product lines can deliver in reducing time-to-market in his article, "The Need for Speed: Releasing Products Earlier Using Software Product Lines." Whereas, in "Why Do We Do Product Lines?" van der Linden cautions that different stakeholders and organizations have different goals that might or might not fit with software product lines.
