comment industry averages for time spent on maintenance
Bug fixing != maintenance! Bug fixing means you coded faults in the system and they need to be fixed in order to restore correct functionality. By maintenance I would mean all tasks such as bug fixes, scalability improvements, hardware migration, and performance improvements etc. I would say more than 25-30% of the time being spent just on bug fixes needs a governance call immediately. Up to 40-50% of the effort spent on maintenance overall sounds reasonable for a mid-size enterprise system.

comment Finding the possible combinations of x switches out of y being true
You probably would need an efficient algorithm to generate the combinations if the gap size can be large.

comment What do small business people do with regards to 'legal' when selling software
I have deliberately not written much about litigation protection but I can if the OP shows an interest --otherwise I will just be blabbering off topic.

comment Design patterns: Extract instance types into different buckets
@John I entertained that possibility. But then how will canConsume() identify if it can consume a given type? Will it maintain a map of supported classes or use instanceof? I.e., the same problem again.

comment Design patterns: Extract instance types into different buckets
@ReinHenrichs Thanks. I gave them some meaningful names but the essence of the problem is that I want to filter a collection of objects based on what run time type they have.

comment Audit trails and recording actions
You are integrating it with a 3rd party app. Understood. But why does that rule out triggers?

comment C# Classes instance members vs. enum
@TimothyP Correct --but that involves casting etc. which defeats the purpose of OOO. Note that I can achieve GetHue() without extension methods too --e.g., by writing helper classes. But then my helper class/extension method becomes hardwired to the enum.

comment Which Continuous Integration framework do you use and why?
@mliebelt --CI expands to more than just compile checks. You can run unit/integration tests (even with other dependent projects).

comment Design backward and forward button operations of a browser
@Falcon I know stack based solution is universal but I don't find a problem with mouviciel's impl too. Can you shed some more light on "much better suited"?
