Gulf of Execution

Gulf of Execution is a term used to describe the the difference between the steps one actually needs to take to achieve a goal and the steps that one perceives.

After learning this term, the example that quickly jumps into my mind is setting up those wifi-enabled devices, like Wii, PSP, NDS, Wireless gateway, etc. In my experience, the one with the narrowest gap is iPhone. The worst one is, well, some operating system.

Michael G Schwern had a blog entry about this on Perl.

Who wide is the Gulf in your favorite parallel programming language/model/scheme/library?
