FYI - I installed that version and had no problems. Wasn't bad. (Disclaimer: YMMV )
Also, why aren't you on 2019?
Actually, you should probably wait because the interface has been "modernized" and it isn't the greatest.
You can do a side-by-side install if you don't mind eating up a ton of extra space on your drive though. I only moved to 2019 because you cannot do .NET Core 3.x without upgrading.
Oldboys have probably heard about the IBM 360 mainframe series. One of the logos used in the 360 days was a circle, with a radius extendig a little outside the circle (looking like a old style potentiometer knob, but nowdays frequently used to mark an on-off pushbutton).
Then came the IBM 370 series. So what did IBM choose as a logo for the 370? A bigger circle!
Acutally, they didn't replace the 360 circle with a bigger 370 circle, they added the 370 circle around the old one, touching where the radius hit the circle(s).
They didn't use this logo a lot; I suspect it was mostly created as an inside joke, but I have come across it a few times in old documentation.
This question was inspired by Kent Sharkey's recent comment in The insiders: "Must have 20 years experience in brand-new technology".
How many of you have come across something like this?
I had one case where they asked for 10 years experience with SQL Server 2008 - this was in 2009. When I pointed out that I had more than 10 years experience with SQL Server and was currently using SQL Server 2008 in my current job, the HR telephone pre-screener said it was very important that the experience be in SQL Server 2008 specifically - when I pointed out the impossibility of this they got very condescending about it, implying that as I didn't have enough of the clearly requested, required experience, I shouldn't be wasting their time!
In another interview, I was asked basically the same question and just lied about it. They accepted this without further questions - so when they offered the job, I turned it down.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
