Word on the street is that MS has stopped asking these stupid puzzle questions and now relies on coding problems.

Hopefully the rest of the industry will follow suit (as they always do eventually) and we've seen the end of the stupid riddle questions during interviews.

Wait, this was supposed to be a site about interview questions?

yeah I just had my interviews at MS and I can tell you that "Word on the street" is right :)
They just asked me a very very easy one on the phone interview and that was it.
I like to think that these puzzles really does indicate something, but this is sure debatable.
Anyway I still like the site and will continue to visit it, interviews or not, I'm having fun! :D
