What are your thoughts about Atomic CSS (

With the introduction of so many similar frameworks (like Tachyons), do you think the CSS industry is moving away from OOCSS and towards single purpose styling units like ACSS?

It weirds me out.

I'm not super compelled by it.

But, I know some very smart people that ARE compelled by it. I would use this kind of thinking:

  1. Can we be comfortable and productive with this thing?
  2. Does it seem like this thing will serve us well into the future?

If both of those questions get confident YES's, use the thing and ignore the nay-sayers.
