Re: A philosophical divide?
I can't say I enjoy maintenance but most of it is not overly arduous. That said, let it get away from you and it goes from being a necessary chore and ends up painful and probably expensive. I guess we do all the day to day stuff ourselves but pay someone else if we think the task is best suited to a professional.
