Rex Fills Linux Foundation Opening Left by Murdock

Lora Bentley

IT Jungle reports this morning that the Linux Foundation is borrowing a CTO from Novell for a year and a half.

 

Markus Rex, who is currently chief technologist for Novell's Open Platform Solutions Group, also serves on the Linux Foundation's board of directors and was a key force behind SuSE Linux Enterprise Server before Novell acquired SuSE. He will take a hiatus from his duties with Novell to "lend a hand" at the Linux Foundation, the story says.

 

He steps into the role Ian Murdock left vacant when he took the job as Sun Microsystems' chief operating platforms officer earlier this year.

 

Linux Foundation executive director Jim Zemlin is grateful for Novell's support:

We appreciate Novell's willingness to lend its technical and financial support to the community with this initiative and hope it serves as a model for the future. Much like open source development itself, this unique approach allows us to neutrally leverage talented personnel from the Linux ecosystem for the greater benefit of Linux Foundation members.
