He sounds very up-to-date! Right with the current trend that deliberately obfuscates this distinction.
Yes, definitely. He fell victim to going from Unix Hacker to Venture Capitalist - meaning that he no longer has the skills. But the fact that he should know better means I get more frustrated with him than everyone else.

Him: "Why is this login screen not coloured the brand colours of the company?!"
Me: "Because... I... changed it?"

It's... infuriating
