A Quote about Programming

I was wondering tonight if programming were an art or a science. While googling this idea, I came upon this quote attributed to Richard StallmanĀ on SlashDot:

“I would describe programming as a craft, which is a kind of art, but not a fine art. Craft means making useful objects with perhaps decorative touches. Fine art means making things purely for their beauty.”
