Red Hat Software

Submission + - An interview with Red Hat's new CEO missionary (news.com)

mjasay writes: "Red Hat just got a new CEO, Jim Whitehurst, but based on this CNET interview with him, he's cut from the same cloth as Matthew Szulik, Red Hat's former CEO. He won't buy an iPod because it won't play Ogg Vorbis files. He refused other CEO roles because he "must have a mission." He suggests that taking proprietary shortcuts is a fundamentally wrong way to build a software business. And he believes Red Hat should be doing $5 billion, not $500 million. It's a question of operational excellence and on focusing on its core businesses, according to Whitehurst."
