Ask Slashdot: Re-Learning How To Interview As a Developer?
I've been at my current company 25 years now. Based on what I heard people saying about me (often in third hand by people that had worked with me and is now based at other companys) I'm technically and methodically in top among comparable professionals and very good at taking in new areas of software systems. I have also never seen anyone be "in full speed" after 3 months. And by full speed I mean handling the application/system as good as one that have worked with it e g 5 years.
Of course, I would had a better career if I had switched jobs much more often. But not all people is career oriented, some like me like the job we're doing where we are and like our coworkers and therefore decides to stay. OTOH I'm a dinosaur that began programming 1979 and is probably obsolete. ;-)

Actually, Hollandes popularity poll number was raised after this affair was published.
In France, having a mistress is a natural thing. The only requirement is handling it discrete. In Hollandes case he did that, but the journalists did nevertheless find it out when they found that he leaved his resident through a backdoor and went to the mistress on a bicycle.

..."The closest you're going to get to needing to support millions of unique users on the first day, and hundreds of thousands simultaneously are things like MMO launches and WoW expansion packs or something like google+"
That has mainframe systems done for decades. (Think airline booking systems and banks.) And they do it quite well.
A Review of the "Mental Illness" Definition Might Prevent Crime
It's not only about "knowing of right vs wrong", maybe the more important point is whether they can *control* their behavior.
This point is also why we should not put children in prisons.

I do not agree with your definition of a operating system. I rather prefer the definition as written at http://www.jfsowa.com/computer/memo125.htm :
"The primary architecture of an operating system comprises the following seven areas:
Process creation, control and communication
Symbol resolution and linkage
Data descriptor schema
Program run-time environment
Communication with external systems, devices, and emulators."
" By contrast, the secondary architecture is an open-ended list that evolves throughout the lifetime of the system. Whereas the primary architecture is one and cannot be subdivided, the secondary architecture can come in an endless variety of sizes and capabilities. Some examples of the secondary facilities include:
HLL [High-Level Language] compilers and interpreters
Application development facilities
Data validity checkers
Various design aids
Etc., etc., etc."
