Most comments were about suiting an experience in software to both hardware and software. CEO levels one need to view differently. They just need to steer the operations in the right direction and almost all the feed back for that comes from the various divisions of the company mostly from the marketting side.So i feel Mr.Apotheker will be able to easily pick up the scent of the Hardware also. My best wishes to him.

Sometimes an outsider can do good things, just because of the change of perspective; other times the poor cultural fit and lack of industry expertise becomes a stumbling block, depending on the new CEO's ego. Certainly the software and services sectors at HP are substantial, but hardware still dominates. The initial stock market reaction is that it isn't a good fit.

Yeah, surprised here as well. Hardware types must not like it at all.

A business software applications person leading a hardware-focused company like HP should be interesting. Wonder if this provides a clue on future strategic changes at HP coming down the line?

i woundnt shock if the company would be Microsoft, or Adobe but it HP. Worlds 1 of the biggest electronics company not software giant. Someone who is outside the market, and kicked out by managing board is not the perfect choice.
