Last project I saw them use abstract classes, and could not understand why they did not use interfaces since they did not do anything that could not be done with an interface. They even had abstract properties that were simple properties created in the derived class.
Just make sure that they can't deny that this was the way they wanted to have it when they come crying.
Yeah, see, the problem is, if they're not smart enough to get it in the first place, "I told you so" won't make them get it when the excrement impacts the air movement device.

It seems that a lot of the white majority (they will soon only be a plurality) want to got back to the 1950's. These are the same people that thought that this country was not ready for a black president. Go back a hundred and fifty years and these are the same people that were discriminated against (Irish, Germans, etc.) because they were not proper Englishmen or did not come over on the Mayflower.

- rather, "now you can do x too," perhaps adding, "a feature not fully implemented in the last release."

A bit confusing: what does "knowing this" refer to ?
In this case, their rules are their loss. I would attribute the fact it (evidently) bothers you to your deep commitment to your "craft:" I can only hope the recognition of that drive for excellence (and innovation !) in your work here balances out the emotional equation !

«... thank the gods that they have made you superior to those events which they have not placed within your own control, rendered you accountable for that only which is within you own control For what, then, have they made you responsible? For that which is alone in your own power—a right use of things as they appear.» Discourses of Epictetus Book I:12
