Did you know you wanted an iPod before you saw it?
No, I didn't.
Do I want an iPod now - no, I don't.

Hasn't anyone learned that exposing things to other people is a great way to get perspective ? It almost seems as though the subject's view is that the coder is above all inputs, and cannot be wrong. I'll agree that users have their place, as do marketers, executives, etc, but exposing code to more eyes can ONLY make it better.
I'm assuming this guy uses an Operating System?
Did he build that Operating System? (I doubt it, there are very few people who will go to the effort to build a custom operating system.)
Therefore, he is a user, am I not correct?
So his analogy therefore implies that he is a five year old kid, as far as using this Operating System is concerned, correct?
So... what would his take be on this - does he believe that he should have any input in the building of this Operating System?
