I am always surprised to see how many software developers I come across who have no experience whatsoever applying FSM's in the course of their work.

I can unequivocally say that FSM's have made me tons of money. By that I mean that they have simplified projects, made them far more robust, easily extensible, simple to modify and, in general terms, quicker to develop with less bugs and errors.

I've used FSM's in FPGA's (for example, optimized DDR memory controllers), embedded projects, robotics and system software. In other words, everywhere.
