There are many other laws, e.g.:

Zawinski's Law of Software Development: Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can.

Atwood's Law: Any application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript.

But there is perhaps no greater legal scholar than Norman Augustine:

Law XVI: Software is like entropy. It is difficult to grasp, weighs nothing and obeys the Second Law of Thermodynamics: i.e., it always increases.

Law XXX: The optimum committee has no members.

Law XXXV: It is true complex systems may be expensive, but it must be remembered that they don't contribute much.

Much recommended:

Augustine's Laws is always worth a reread as well.
