Linux Kernel developer leaves Red Hat for Intel

Posted: 1/24/2009 by Floyd in Labels:

After 10 years at Red Hat British Linux kernel developer Alan Cox said in late December he would be taking a position within Intel's operating devision effective around mid January, Cox left Red Hat on good terms strongly supporting the work Red Hat is doing. But he went on to say that the move will let him get closer to the low level that interest's him most.

Intel has hired more employees with open source ties recently and is helping shape the open source Linux Moblin platform. The Linux foundation has named Ted Tso an IBM veteran and first North American developer of the Linux kernel as it's new CTO, who will replace Markus Rex of Novell.

    I'm glad that some people are still working! Lots of people in Washington State are filing for unemployment, and Microsoft laid off 1,4000 people yesterday.

    It is so tough all over and I for one am hoping that it will get better soon, but it will take some time. I think all companies are feeling the heat right now.
