    We really need some heavy lifting on FreeCAD and similar projects that have been neglected for programs such as Blender, I would love an open source competitor to Autodesk Inventor or even Solidworks.

    Most likely this is due to how quickly a person is ready to adapt to a new environment, for example, at 20 years old there is still not enough experience, but there is a desire to learn more new things than at 27. But in fact, experience is often needed in order to quickly integrate a person into the process, unload the rest, than when the resource is still spent on the execution of all processes and getting that same experience. There is no age limit here, and it doesn't matter if you are 20 or 27 if you have no work experience.

    Really? I think I've only ever heard it from managers (non-technical ones who just bought an MBA from a mill), not even the 20-year-olds themselves.

    I also hear all the time that Americans are racist, at least from CNN, NBC, MSNBC.
    Good straw man.

    There's a lot that 20 year-olds don't know. I was sure a lot more competent and capable at 27 than 20, for sure. Any difference in how hard I could work was more than offset by my ability to find better solutions that often required less work.

    I wonder if this has anything to do with competing with China's similar initiative (forgot what it's called), or maybe it's just because they realized that a 27 yrs old dude is just as capable as a 20 yrs old?
