The question was:
- "It's Friday afternoon, your four 200-page document PDFs are on the
FinalPDF server to be picked up by the build server, the build is
Saturday morning, and you heard that Linux is now not supported. Tell
me what you do in the first 15 minutes."

You are assuming something. You also might have heard it from the VP
of Software Development. Poking holes in the interview question is
not the "test". This is an interview and the purpose of the question
was to see if you knew a process. Answer the question.
