I cannot even begin to imagine working in an open environment. I think they almost got it correct - perhaps the open area should have been the meeting area with offices on the periphery. I think this guy got it right, or pretty close to it:

The new Fog Creek office – Joel on Software[^]

I have seen the insanity of making decisions for developers by people who aren't developers go on for so long. IT spec'ing machines when they have no clue what will be done with them. Same for monitors, keyboards, chairs, even to technical books.

But I will say that one of the best business investments I ever made was buying Bose QC15s. I deliberately sit such that I cannot see with peripheral vision if someone is standing in my cubicle "door". I type this from my home office. I have doors, and I use them.
