And that's my NSHO as a CEO who does hiring. My company exists
since 1995, and I was always able to distinguish between blenders
that tell me about dists they boasted to be in-and-out and (to take
a recent example) Ex-Solaris admins with 20+ years experience who
were grumpy but knew Linux best practices within a forthnight. No
need to tell who I hired.


That's interesting. Do you get them to do anything with a computer when
they attend interview?

No. I ask them for past experience and I ask them how they would
approach problems that I tell them. If they sound good, I invite
them to a pub together with other staff of mine and ask them for
war stories that may be shared.

If they really lie to me, we'll discover that within the first few
weeks and will fire them on the spot. But we never had to.

I also try to discover fanboys (does one say fangirls, too? never
read that), be it distro or any other technology (Apple, Android,
Windows, Linux in general happens quite often). I can't afford to
send such people to customers. I would loose contracts.
