"It's open season for open-source chief executives. In the past week, new CEOs have arrived at no less than three purveyors of open-source software: Linux seller MandrakeSoft, Linux server software seller Cybernet Systems, and Apache Web server services company Covalent Networks."

"John Jack will take over Covalent's president and chief executive; former Covalent CEO Randy Terbush will continue as chief technology officer. Covalent provides software and services for the Apache Web server, the most popular program used to send out pages to people surfing the Web."

"Cybernet's line of NetMax Linux-based server appliance software now will be under the leadership of chief executive and vice president Gena Lodolo. Lodolo previously was senior vice president of sales and marketing for technology consulting company Complete Business Solutions."

"And up-and-coming MandrakeSoft now is under the leadership of Herni Poole, an American whose most recent stint was founder and chief executive of Vivid Studios. MandrakeSoft, which is based in Paris and has 90 employees, formerly was under the leadership of co-founder Jacques Le Marois."
