My college roommate spent a summer doing an internship at Sun
Microsystems, helping write the manual for a new language they
were releasing.

So, when recruiters were asking for five years of Java
experience three years later, he was one of very few people not
employed at Sun who could reasonably claim that.

Years are a terrible way to judge experience. So are most other
ways, though.
