I daresay every contemporary programmer involved in either graphical or 
Web user interfaces is quite familiar with the original MVC pattern as 
well as some newer variations on it. They may or may not know a lot 
about its history (I only knew about the part back to PARC), but if you 
were in a job interview and claimed you could do GUIs or Web UIs and 
didn't know what MVC was (beyond just knowing the name and what the 
letters stood for), you'd wash out immediately.    (02)
