His reply was astonishing - he said "well, I guess you don't meet the qualifications, this interview is over." Lazy HR folks are not doing their companies any favors.

Larry kills another one. The ultimate bait-and-switch operation is Oracle.
Windows 8 is about as functional as Vista as well. Pretty low bar. If folks had a choice Windows 8 would simply die.
..and in the second year of the invasion, all Internet commerce ground to a halt - stranding most earthlings in their home-offices to starve.
Java is (to me) a neutral issue. What's truly alarming is Oracle's treating of every ecosystem it comes upon as gold to be mined. Not *everything* in the world is a Larry Ellison piggy bank.
Make one that erases the passage of time then make a movie about it.
