Until something cheaper comes along.

Eazy+costly= nogo
Complex+cheap=don'tlike,but will do if it's cheaper than everything else
easy+cheap=everyone's favorite

Note that easy+cheap generally <> reliable but that is a different argument.

It however leaves the question of which is more complicated, still open.
