Submission + - Marc Fleury leaves JBoss/Redhat

Anonymous Coward writes: "Reuters article: x?view=CN&storyID=2007-02-12T174242Z_01_N12382001_ RTRIDST_0_REDHAT-EXECUTIVE.XML&rpc=66&type=qcna "Software maker Red Hat Inc. said on Monday the executive in charge of its JBoss division has left the company, eight months after he joined Red Hat as part of its acquisition of JBoss." From Greg Wilkin's blog: 20000.html "We should applaud Marc that he at least partially delivered on his promise to distribute the rewards of success to the contributors to the project. But the problem with this OS fairy tale is that the distribution of reward was simply not fair or balanced. While Marc deserved to be well rewarded for his part in the success of the project and business it sustained, I simple cannot see why his reward was several orders of magnitudes larger than that given to the people that actually wrote the software and implemented the business he inspired.""

There is hardly a thing in the world that some man can not make a little worse and sell a little cheaper.
