"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Kuniteru Kojima was dismissed as president of Turbolinux Japan KK August 31 and has been replaced by acting president Jesse Casman while a permanent replacement is sought.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."
