Why is that bad? Because they won't get the whole software engineer experience?
They probably don't have the needs or capital to justify that
Then take out a loan. And if they can't do that, then how are they going to pay for this new school anyway?
and a lower quality software development will do just fine..
No it won't. You cannot magically get better results by shoving more people at a problem. You'll get a bunch of shitty software that will always break and will cost you more in the long run. Would you buy a disposable car that will completely ruined after three years of constant repairs for a 30% discount? Is your time really so cheap that all the hours of being broke down on the side of the road are worth it?
people who are that fucking smart are _not_ in it for the money
What a stupid remark. Intelligence is not at all related to motive. Furthermore, what would it matter if they were in it for the money? Is, say, a scientific conclusion wrong when it's was reached with the goal of earning money? I conjecture that you just resent the idea of money and think it evil, and are projecting your belief on the heroes that you worship, expecting them to hold the same ideals as you do.
One is to be respectful and polite, the old way.
So, the bums playing shitty music on the sidewalk, begging for handouts is what people should aspire to?
