Exactly! My girlfriend almost wasn't hired at Oracle for a sales position because she had a couple classes left on her 4 year degree. They wanted to hire her based on interview and previous experience but only would after she enrolled to finish the classes. I find that ridiculous considering their CEO didn't finish college!!! People in charge of hiring need to get with the times.

Exactly, and that is one of my biggest complaints about Apple. On one hand you have people claiming how simple and intuitive they are.

On the other hand how are the following the least bit intuitive?
-Right click on older Mac Book Pros requires you to place to fingers on the track pad and then click the giant mouse button that easily could have been split in half.
-Scroll wheel on iPods, who knows what you're doing half the time.
-Pressing "Enter" in Finder on OS X does a "rename". Huh? What's the single press button to open the damn file?
-"Home" and "End" in Mac OS X. I may as well rip these keys off the keyboard because by default they're useless compared to there behavior on a PC.
-iPhoto: Try to delete something, I dare you. Hint: don't try the obvious stuff like the "delete" key or pressing "right click" (I'm assuming you already know you're Mac hardware's obscure Konami code-esque right click combination)

For all Apple's UI preachy-ness you'd think they'd have figured out the value of a right click context menu by now.
