HP has driven off anyone over 45+ ; After they laid off my 60 yo director , I was demoted and moved to a group to produce paper work for vendors even though I was a principle SW engineer ; my next review has 2 sentences : "Does not meet expectations " after 24 years of excellent reviews ; I was gone 2 months later.
Libc malloc should never return NULL until you have exceeded the heap size of your process. This could happen in x86 32bit world where the malloc/process space is around 3GB ; libc malloc should sleep infinitely until a memory page is made available via virtual memory reclaim steps. An 64b process would behave the same, although the process address space is match larger. What really causes system hangs in the kernel's inability to alloc vmalloc space; that is when system calls start failing and Out of Memory process starts killing off random memory hogs.
"The company expects to achieve $1 billion of cost savings in its first year, with 70 percent of that coming from workforce optimization measures and finding supply chain efficiencies. "
"optimization" ... translates to mass layoffs and huge bonus to CEO's for their mgr skills .
I was at IBM for a number of years in 1990/2000 in Austin and saw massive cuts after they scrapped the retirement plan; They laid off scores of non-exempt employees to save vacation and benefits costs and offered them the same positions as contractors. This shit runs rampant ; "hi tech" careers are really becoming sweat shop type of work environments; Hurry , hurry hurry , we always have time to do it oiver as long as it is on time the 1st time. Oracle; Dell; HP all do the same shit.
They essentially steal open source and repackage it . they do little development .. all issues are pushed upstream . I worked with Canonical on a product with ffreescale and it was horrible results . I will never again touch such a turd
They have yet to make a cent in profit
