Interfacing with legacy systems

How I see Joel's list 18 years later

Do you use source control ?

Can you make a build in a single step ? Do you make daily builds ?

Do you have a bug database ? Do you fix bugs before writing new code ?

Do you have a spec ?

Do programmers have quiet working conditions ?

Do you use the best tools the money can buy ?

Do you have testers ?

Do new candidates write code during the interview ?

Do you do hallway usability testing ?
