Actually, you are right and while i appreciate your (successful, i give you that) attempt at being funny you actually voiced a deeper truth than you might even have considered: we are in (actually at the core of) the automatisation business: computers are so widespread and we have so much well-paid work to do because they do things automatically we would otherwise have to do ourselves.

I fail to see why everything should be automated using computers but us - who make that all possible - should slave and do our work manually. I am a fairly good typist, but i like to picture myself as being even better at thinking than at typing - so i rather think of ways to minimise the typing than to type more just to be able to avoid thinking. If i can enjoy some BBQ in the time i freed for myself this way - all the better!

Interesting results.

I thought there will be way less people in this category "Amateur with no absolute knowledge of any one part of computer science, but willing to learn." Linux

Which is not a bad thing.
