comment OS choice for functional developing
To install Ubuntu I used wubi with my win7 installation, it was a piece of cake once I downloaded the Ubuntu cd ISOs. It set up the dual-boot so it plays nicely with Windows bootloader to launch GRUB if you choose to boot Ubuntu. Pretty slick, and if you don't like Ubuntu it's a quick uninstall in Windows.

Note that hibernate is just a database abstraction layer, nothing more, and it can be used to plug a data source into any kind of java app, not just a web application.

comment When deciding on whether or not to work for a new company, what are your dealbreakers?
I don't think this one is true if your future co-workers have families. I have enough friends on my own, I don't need a new crew of "drinking buddies", thanks.

Agree with @Stephen, it's almost as if Atria/Rational/IBM worked to make ClearCase suck more.

@Josh K: Sounds like a good opportunity for free training?

#3 and #4 are key. #3 also shows that people don't give a sh*t about working there either, that they're only interested in themselves and getting their own code done, which is soul-stealing if you do care. #4 is the top way for me to see management's commitment to development.

comment I believe my solution is better than my boss's, so should I ignore him?
Let me guess, you've been coding for less than 5 years? Sweet, innocent child... :-)
