A courteous employer, that cashes out unused Time off, provides severance when laying off employees, even gives a heads up that layoffs might come in bad times, deserves an effort on your part to minimize the impact of your departure. An employer who doesn't pay out all of the left over vacation time, or lays folks off without severance, or is abusive, you can still be the bigger person, but it's not necessary.

Comment It wouldn't surprise me if .NET phases out JAVA (Score 4, Interesting) 243

Microsoft's move to open source,and set free some very powerful programming tools, carries well into this story. Developers choose Java because it was believed to be free/open But as far as Oracle is concerned, it's not. I really do think .net core can fill this role now.
