There's no reason to draw any lines, just use what works for you.
Personally I prefer simple software for multitude reasons:
  - they start up faster than my attention span runs out
  - they don't get in the way with suggestions i.e. guesses
  - they don't hog up all resources if left running
  - they're easy to modify, should I need to change something

In general, writing simple software requires the developer to understand
the application area well, and there's some good idea behind the
implementation. Then it simply boils down to whether that idea matches
the way you want things to work.

If you have the time and motivation, try different things. If you don't,
stick to what you know. Repeat ad mortem.
