Will it be widely accepted like Object-oriented programming, design patterns, etc?

Hi Greenapple,

It's not like OOP, This an process/methodology/model for developing and managing software applications. Such as SDLC.

Hi "greenapple,"

I think that "agile development" will disappear and simply become "software development." We're already seeing this happen with practices like test-driven development and continuous integration. However, there will probably always be a grumpy old guard (I'll be part of it) that keeps beating the drum for doing these things rigorously and mindfully. I suspect, sadly, that during the transition from "agile" to "the way everybody works" many of the revolutionary ideas (like having no bugs!) will be watered down.
