Creatorul Mac OS X paraseste compania Apple

Stirea zilei, de ieri, l-a avut in centru pe Bertrand Serlet, geniul din spatele sistemului de operare Mac OS X pe care milioane de utilizatori din lumea intreaga il folosesc zi de zi. Compania Apple a anuntat oficial prin intermediul departamentului de publicitate ca Bertrand Serlet va parasi compania dupa nu mai putin de 22 de ani petrecuti in birourile companiei din Cupertino. Bertrand a facut parte din echipele care au dezvoltat Mac OS X inca de la prima versiune lansata de Apple si e ciudat sa il vedem plecand acum cand compania se pregateste sa schimbe radical modul in care functioneaza Mac OS X.

Unii spun ca Bertrand ar pleca datorita modificarilor aduse Mac OS X-ului si poate au dreptate insa pentru Apple e o lovitura grea avand in vedere ca vorbim despre unul dintre oamenii care a construit practic sistemul de operare folosit de unii dintre noi. Poate noul Lion va lasa in urma cateva “victime” si va fi un esec sau poate Apple va aduce un suflu nou in echipa si Mac OS X Lion va avea parte de un succes la fel de mare precum produsele recent lansate de Apple.

CUPERTINO, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)— Apple® today announced that Bertrand Serlet, Apple’s senior vice president of Mac® Software Engineering, will be leaving the company. Craig Federighi, Apple’s vice president of Mac Software Engineering, will assume Serlet’s responsibilities and report to Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. Federighi is responsible for the development of Mac OS® X and has been managing the Mac OS software engineering group for the past two years.

“I’ve worked with Steve for 22 years and have had an incredible time developing products at both NeXT and Apple, but at this point, I want to focus less on products and more on science,” said Bertrand Serlet, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “Craig has done a great job managing the Mac OS team for the past two years, Lion is a great release and the transition should be seamless.”

Federighi worked at NeXT, followed by Apple, and then spent a decade at Ariba where he held several roles including vice president of Internet Services and chief technology officer. He returned to Apple in 2009 to lead Mac OS X engineering. Federighi holds a Master of Science degree in Computer Science and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley.
