Re: I'm confused*

It's because many a Program Manager, a.k.a. decision maker, has tried to plan, budget and manage a software project before, and had their fingers burnt.

"Oh, it'll only take a man-month..."; and then it takes three years.

They'd literally rather manage a 'rocket science' space mission than another 'simple code migration' software project.

THAT'S why.

You know I'm right.
