I've always seen being in IT now was like being in mechanics 80 years ago.
But now, I think being in IT is like being a plumber except your pipe vendor only sell rusty pipes with holes pouring everywhere or non standard pipes that won't work with your old pipes
People from both side of your pipes (users and the world) will try to push more shit in your pipes
I think Opensource software is there to help plumbers to make their own pipes, so the content doesn't get poured on them.
@solene and I totally agree with you.
I was being sarcastic.
@kicou sorry, I wasn't sure
