Red Hat's founders continue to distance themselves from all that tedious day-to-day running a business stuff, this time thanks to last year's acquisition of software development tool maker Cygnus. We've already had Bob Young pass on operational control of Red Hat to president and CEO Matthew Szulik in order to sit on the board as chairman and devote his time to loftier pursuits than ensuring the paycheques go out on time, there are plenty of bog rolls and so forth. And fellow founder Marc Ewing has handed over the Chief Technical Office badge to Cygnus' Michael Tiemann. Ewing will remain on the Red Hat board, and continue to direct the Red Hat Center for Open Source thinktank. Alas, no role seems to have been found for Tiemann's colleague, Cygnus CEO Alex Daly. So Daly wills soon be off to "pursue other opportunities", as Red Hat euphemistically puts it. ®
