Compared to deal with design flaws - might still be less. Often applications are designed poorly (or not at all, they just grew), so it is less effort and a lot cleaner to start from scratch and maybe some reuse parts of the original application.

It simply depends. When I look at the stuff I wrote 10 years ago I would clearly vote for starting from scratch Wink | ;)
