no, but in Sweden we have a lot of attitude of "not doing anything that
is remotely related to work during freetime, even if it is fun".

I have gotten that a lot over the years from people working with what
would classically be described as being "prefessional" and working with
"professional tools, vendors and systems".

It is my impression that other cultures are a bit more relaxed about
this, but I am totally open to the idea that I am wrong.
