he got 20+ planes, which need 3-5 technicians to run PM etc. Seems Steve didn't have enough man power here.

Wonder are safety precautions so loose in US too? In India its quite common that plane crashes due to safety guidelines being loosely handled. Anyway its a great loss to semiconductor industry.

Feels sad to lose such a great leader and I hope Micron future is still safe.

not really, the folks around would say what a xxx would drive such a dangerous plane at age of 51.

Sad to hear this news. Anyway, I guess Steve surely is a very bright person as he can climb up the ladder from a fresh graduate to the top position in just 11 years!

I think we can't blame him on this point. just imagine, boise, idaho, winter... nothing you can do there, maybe you can enjoy your xbox360 and all cool. steve need sth cooler than this. the board should give him more vacation time, an office at LA, and teach him sailing instead...

uh.. . wow.. I almost lost hope in micron when Durcan want to retire. the new adams COO idea just sounds so naive. this is .. act of heaven .. grace shines on Durcan, the shy, quite but thoughtful guy behind the struggling micron and thousands of it's employees.

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.
