How much time do you spend working on Ubuntu?
It must be 50+ hours per week (if you count the weekends, etc.) It varies a lot though. Here I'd like to quote from `Hayao Miyazaki – Master of Japanese Animation` of `Helen McCarthy`: she quotes Andrew Simmons, a staffer at Disney about work in an animation studio:
Full day's work – a full eight-hour day, forty-hour week
Busy – forty- to forty-five-hour week
Very busy – forty-five- to fifty-hour week
Very, very busy – fifty-five- to sixty-hour week
Crunch time – sixty- to seventy-hour week plus some
Last week of crunch – living on Jolt soda and coffee
Done by Friday – getting the phone number of the Betty Ford Clinic
Done – Coma
