I'm a professional software engineer working for a small VC funded
startup that is has been breaking even for about a year now and
will hopefully take off really soon.

All the stuff I do is coded on and running on Linux. A large
chunk of the code is C++, with some C and another quite large
chunk of code being a bunch of small utilities written in
Ocaml.

In any given week I could be hacking on Linux device drivers,
writing networking code in C++ or writing utilities in Ocaml.

Not me.

I've worked for large companies (SUN back in the early 2000s)
and small companies and I much prefer the small ones because
I get to do a wider range of stuff, there's far, far less
bureaucracy and the management structure is flatter.
