Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens Resigns

For most of the last decade, whenever there has been major Red Hat Linux news, Brian Stevens more often than not has been the person I have spoken with. Until Aug. 27, Stevens had been the CTO of Red Hat, a position he had held since November 2001.

Stevens’ departure comes as a surprise to me—one that I did not see coming. Hindsight, however, is always 20/20, and the simple reality is that for a man as talented as Stevens, there are always other opportunities to consider.
