I work with a few developers which all they do is maintenance. It is because they don't have the skills to start anything new. They have to have examples of what works within the framework and then make small changes.

There are times when I like maintenance because it is quick and easy but I wouldn't want to do it all the time.
There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.
