I obviously won't miss CEO either, but I do want to add the nuance that I do feel sorry for the people that work there - they might lose their jobs and that's a very sad thing for those people and their families and friends.

Its a workers market. They can get new jobs. Jobs where they are paid to do what they do best, Code, instead of searching the Linux kernel for possible infriging code.

For the CEO, it think it will be a little harder for him to get a new job. Maybe the register at Wall-mart.
Oh wait that involves money. Sweeping the floors then.

This is the computer industry. He's mucked things up for a massive company. I'm sure he'll soon have a new, cushy position. I hear they need some help over at Amiga Inc, for example.
