"A turbulent year for San Francisco-based Open Source
and proprietary software developer Turbolinux Inc. is far from
over, with the news the company has fired the president of its
profitable Japanese subsidiary and is stopping package sales of its
products in the United States.
Kuniteru Kojima was dismissed as president of Turbolinux Japan
KK August 31 and has been replaced by acting president Jesse Casman
while a permanent replacement is sought.
Although there has been no official statement from Turbolinux
Inc., which normally posts press releases of important events on
its Web site, a Japanese trade publication interviewed Casman, a
34-year-old who joined Turbolinux in the United States two years
ago and transferred to Tokyo early this year."
