On Software and Sausages

"To retain respect for sausages, laws, and software, one must not watch them in the making." -- Otto von Bismarck (paraphased)

The other day I ran into R, a friend and former colleague from Sun. He's now working for a customer C and they are (I think) considering licensing the software from Sun that he used to work on when he was at Sun. We had a brief exchange that went something like this.

Me: So, considering that you know how software is developed at Sun, are you still willing to license it?

R: (knowing laugh)

Me: Ah, considering that you know how software is developed at C, you're willing to license it from Sun?

R: (knowing laugh)

Comments:

Yeah, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, until you realize the reason is because it's over a septic tank.
