"We at osOpinion hear Bynari has a new CEO coming on board. According to some reliable sources, apparently Tom Adelstein was really only the acting CEO rather than that of a permanent one until apparently Scott Crist of Crist Ventures and Bynaris Chairman found his candidate. Bynari's former CEO was Wayne Burnside, who was ousted in May."

"Adelstein has taken considerable criticism for being a slasher having tuned over his organization twice in the last six months. Evidently, he has no qualms about walking people out of the door."

"From what we hear, the new CEO is a different type of manager. He supposedly pulled off a Linux IPO last fall, started and ran the AIX project at IBM in the 1980's and was Mike Dell's right hand in the early 1990's when they began capturing market share. But who is he? No one seems to really know or at least no one is telling me."

"Another theory being put forth about Bynari is that they will announce either a merger or a sale. Speculation has it that they were a SCO acqusition target until the Caldera merger. Several osOpinion commentators recommended earlier in the year that Red Hat or Caldera should buy Bynari. One can only wonder if this is still in the works?"
