Ah yes, What Adam Smith called 'division of labour' and what we term
"specialization".

The problem with us *NIX type is that we tend to become
"non-specializing specialists", develop a wide knowledge based on an
understanding of a few basic patterns and rules that underlay how *NIX
works. It means we can move comfortably between different version and
implementations and aren't upset when we see the innards of OSX or of
Android.

And then there are the specialists-specialists ...Its often difficult to
talk with them, they seem to have a different language.
