Please do a search, this question is asked about once every three days... :roll:

I wonder why there are so many people who ask this question. Is it a standard question in job interviews or in a course somewhere?

I suppose it's a sort of Rorschach test interview question; the answer is meaningless, but how you answer tells you a lot about a person. In other words, coming here to ask for an answer is silly, because there is no right answer: the questioner wants your opinion. If you don't have an opinion, then they want to know that, too.

I'm closing this thread.
