Two takes on culture clash of Mainframe vs. Modern skill sets

Permanent article link

C|Net News has an article talking about Legacy (mostly mainframe) skills and how they contrast to the skills developed in the modern world of Linux, Web, Java and .Net.

It is a typical high level article where each word is important, but the whole passage is hard to read.

On the other hand, we have a Slashdot discussion on the same topic from only a couple of days earlier. In there, deep comments are mixed in with just as deep geek humor with the end result of being much more entertaining end educational at the same time.

But only by reading both articles, one gains a good understanding of what the issue is actually about.
