Today, as Chief Technical Officer of Red Hat, he continues to shape the future of open source as it drives the next-generation of embedded, post-PC computing devices. Prior to joining Red Hat, Michael served as the co-founder and Acting CTO of Cygnus Solutions, which was acquired by Red Hat in January 2000.
