This says a lot.
Apple's former software chief Avie Tevanian mused on his Facebook page that he "wonders how a 25-year IBM veteran will replace Tony," according to one of his Facebook friends.
However, I never consider age to be a huge factor in how one may manage a task like this, but I'm wondering if this guy can go from IBM to Apple and not feel somehow "restricted" with Apple's ways. Or is this just a resume builder to get him to where he wants to go?

I'm think that he might have just wanted a change.

Can you please use a word other than "change" for the next couple of weeks? :)

Hopefully someone at Apple considered these issues during the interview process :p Anyway, I don't mind the idea of outside perspectives being cycled into the mix at Apple.

Yes we can :)
