comment Is it bad etiquette to ask a potential employer how they score on the Joel Test?
@JBRWilkinson: Yes, I have, and had plenty of code to write on a whiteboard. But maybe it's only for software engineering positions.

You are very likely going to write code during an interview with Google, at least for a technical position.

comment Other than the Linux kernel, which operating system kernels should you study?
let's see: Linux, the BSDs, Symbian, L4, Mach, uC/OS, TinyOS... Anything else, really. Somehow, I can only find Oberon interesting as a bad example. Of course, I'm biased by having to actually work with it far too much.

Nah, there are many much more interesting OSes around (and this is coming from someone writing Oberon-2 (the language) software on Oberon (the OS) almost every day). Mouse chords, anyone?
