Interesting.

All the hardware people I've worked with have been reasonably happy working on 
software.  That may be more common in the digital world.

As an example, most people write PAL code as logic equations rather than 
schematics.

It would be interesting to compare the costs of hardware vs software for a big 
chip project over time.
