comment What causes bad performance in consumer apps?
This is a really thorough, well-thought answer! Coincidentally, I read this right after coming back from a team meeting where the theme was "#1 A-priority bug this cycle: latency is >60ms, it has to be 33ms, ZOMG!!!1!"

comment Is it possible to write an operating system in C?
I should maybe add that I have written an operating system in C. Or at least, I thought I had, until I read the quote above.

Intinsics not intrinsically. Dammit, autocorrect.

@steve314 But if you use nonstandard intrinsically and the technically undefined behavior of poking variables to (uint) addresses, are you still working in C? The person quoted would seem to think not.

comment Is it possible to write an operating system in C?
My intention isn't to snipe at a particular commenter, but to suss out the boundaries of when one can say "X was written in C" and when you really need to say "X was written in a C-like language."

comment Interview question ranking FizzBuzz (1), implementing malloc (10)
Implementing malloc() is a sophomore-year homework assignment (or at least it was when I went to school). There are surely more difficult problems one faces on the job!

"Public Domain", I would expect.

comment What is an untriaged bug?
The assigned owner makes that determination, since s/he's the one who understands the system, whether it's really a bug or by design, and the cost of fixing it. Anyway my point isn't to argue which is the better bug-reporting process; I was just pointing out an alternative definition of the word 'triage' used at some workplaces.
