Changes many of which could have been avoided from the beginning if not for strategic mid-judgments of the CEO and the board. It should not be the employees who pay for that!

It is good to see a company making hard but needed changes. I hope that it will be successful for them. I know that it is hard on those being laid off, I hope that they will be able to find employment soon. The razor thin consumer market is a hard place to be and profit in as we have seen. Good luck Cisco!

Tough decisions for tough times. Let's hope it works and they can grow again next year. They took their place in the customers back office for granted.

Maybe this is good to Cisco to focus on its high profit segment. The impact from China seems great!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
