it is probably a better description of the application space, but even
there, it doesn't apply across the board.

people who don't develop software (and even some who do) sometimes imagine
that the process inside a company than actually pays its developers is
radically different from the one that involves hobbyists. the differences
are not as dramatic as you might think, and in the case of particularly
small companies, there can effectively be no difference at all.
