When I was in school learning to write software, the professors told us that the software world was transitioning from linear programming to structured programming. I recall programmers struggling with that shift. I worked at a contract software company for a while and saw a few people who could never quite wrap their arms around event driven software. Myself, I had the same struggles when going from structured programming to object oriented programming. I know "object oriented" is still in the vernacular, but I haven't heard the phrases "structured programming", "linear programming" or "event driven" programming in quite a while. Essentially, it's virtually all event driven these days. I'm just not sure if people still refer to it that way.

I think most of us dislike change to some extent. Even if it’s as simple as not wanting to change operating systems from Windows 98 to Windows XP, or Windows XP to Windows Vista, or Windows Vista to Windows 7. Has an unwanted technology transition happened to you?
