See for yourself:
I attempted to apply for a "software engineering" position with a company called "Commvault".
I have recently received their "interview" guidelines, and let me tell you, I was totally creeped out!
Their "online assessment" for everybody (including professionals) necessitated the use of a live camera, mic, and screen capture!!
I have 15 years of experience, and almost two advanced CS degrees. So when I received that, I told their HR a how disappointed I was, and withdrew my application!

Leave Apple while you can. Diversify your account portfolio, and I'm not talking about #stonks
People of fosstodon, do you find yourself more productive in specific computers?
I have a modern desktop, a thinkpad t490 and a thinkpad x220, and despite my x220 being the oldest one, with worse screen and hardware, everytime I use it, I feel much more productive. All of them run the same OS and software loadout.
This could be a "correlation is not causation" thing, but I wonder if anyone here feels the same.
