+ - Challenging software development

Over the years I've done the former, and the challenge was usually due to time , money or resources but the actual problem space was algorithmically simple — move data from here to there — reliably. How do people get out of that environment to work on more innovative things like the Google car etc. Has anyone progressed from a corporate integration programming environment to a more R&D based environment in their mid 40s? Whats it like? I'd like to think I would have excelled in my youth with less real world distractions, but not so sure now after years of 'dumbed-down' development."

Also Linux security is traditionally viewed from the ability to infect system files on a mult-user machine, and it had long had a superior security model in this respect.
But todays users, really only cares about their own files , which are far more accessible to malware whilst surfing the net.
