I had to look up "peripatetic". Thanks for the English lesson. It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog. Mark is a strong guy. The board obviously felt through the personnel exits they made, that the previous direction was wrong. AMD needs strong. Challenging conventional thinking. I believe the computing industry benefits from AMD rising up again. Here's hoping.

I think IBM would love to exit the Semi business, but to this point, I don't think they've found a good exit strategy.

Not to hijack the discussion, but why is IBM still in the semi business?

Note that now both the CEO and CTO of AMD are ex IBM ers. Ever since salesman Sanders days, AMD has been a me-too intellectual dwarf that has depended heavily on IBM and ex IBMers as a crutch - for design ( multi-core processors ) as well as Fabs. Just as AMD Fabs used to look up to IBM Fabs for new nodes, successor Glo Fo still turns on the words of wisdom from IBM - and gets burned " HK Gate first per Meyerson's Mantra at 32 nm then lack of scalability at 28 nm forced them to flip flop to Gate last that Intel had pioneered and had in prod since '07 ). Would be interseting to find out how Glo Fo does w/ its VP R&D hired from failure Moto / Freescale in spite of the $ 1.6 billion in subsidy they have wangled from the taxpayers of NY state.

AMD has been looking for solutions. Hope this does the magic. Most times, it may not be the people at the top, it might be the engineers at the bottom they need.

Flighty, n'er do well, with a penchant for pissing off the establishment. Papermaster will fit in quite well!
