comment How can one find out if open-source code was used in a commercial product?
What alarm would there be to sound? There's nothing in the GPL that stops Microsoft from releasing their own Linux distro called Windows 9. They just need to follow the GPL.

comment I can't remember programming 5 mins after learning?
Do you have this problem with other subjects? It's possible that you're dealing with a learning disorder of some sort. Not saying that's the case, but it's always a possibility... and if it is the case, "more practice" probably isn't the solution.

comment Interviewing someone for general unix skills
@Christophe - If you're hiring capable *nix programmers, IMO it's fair to assume that they "that they know their way around the command line". If you're hiring capable other-OS developers, IMO it fair to assume that their *nix command lines skills are minimal. Group A doesn't need to be tested, group B gets an automatic fail, so why bother testing them, either? If your criteria for hiring a software developer is based on how well they use the command line, well, I think that your hiring process is flawed. It would be different if shell scripting was the main responsibility of the position.

comment Interviewing someone for general unix skills
@Yam - It says it like this... if you're hiring and somebody sends you a resume that you believe is contrived, you just don't interview that person. What you don't do is create some silly test that a) you admit has no bearing on the position's requirements, and b) admit that is only designed to test the "honesty" of somebody's claimed experience. If somebody can't even get an interview at OP's company without having their "honesty" questioned because they said that they've used the *nix shell, what does that say about the company? To me, it says shit job at shit company. YMMV.
