Alan Cox leaves RedHat: Is RedHat shifting focus?

Red Hat Software 0

ruphus13 (890164) writes "Alan Cox — one of the lead Linux kernel developers at RedHat — is leaving the company after 10 years and is heading to Intel, where he can focus on more low-level development tasks. There is speculation if this is indicative of a shift to a more 'application-centric' vision at RedHat. From the article, "Red Hat is integrating more application related, user- and enterprise-centric tools into its well-established "low-level", "core" development and support tools. It'd be more worrisome if Red Hat neglected to strike out in this direction. Cox was with Red Hat for ten years, and regardless of any suspected change of course within the company, that's a fair amount of time. If the Intel position allows Cox to do more of the type of development that interests him...it seems it a wise move.""
