"Reflecting on his own recent promotion to chief executive officer, a position he first held back in the early days when Linuxcare was only a three-person operation, Tyde says the past two years have taught him much about the subtle difference between being a leader and being comfortable with being the leader."
"The Arthur Tyde of two years ago is so much different from the way I am today," he says. "You could not ask for a more valuable learning experience."
"Two years ago, when Tyde and a few other members of the Bay Area Linux Users Group decided to form a company focusing entirely on Linux service issues, playing the leader wasn't that hard. Like Henry V excoriating his "merry band of brothers" to charge once more into the corporate breach, Tyde was merely a first among equals, the guy with good communication skills in a community where such skills are a rarity."
