One guy I know does the work of several programmers, with few bugs in his code, but he writes very "old school" C that would make most people cringe.

in thread Commonly accepted style guide?
So, this guy's code would pass criterion #1, but not criterion #2? To me, well-written code passes both criteria, and (imho) style is an important part of that.
My criteria for good software:
- Does it work?
- Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
