This discussion came up in the ALT.Net mailing list, it reflects my own thinking so much, I had to quote it:

> Some of the largest software development shops in the world would disagree with you

Chad Myers: Most of the largest software development shops would disagree with me on a lot of things. They tend to be top-heavy, waterfall-laden
dysfunctional bureaucratic/political nightmares, too. Many of the largest shops also still have mainframes and COBOL systems for which
they no longer have the original source code for (I know of at least one). They're mostly concerned with protecting middle management and how
they can shave 1% more off of software development by offshoring to Indian or Brazil too. So I'm not too worried that they disagree with me :)
