Greentree leaves Novell under a cloud

Novell has refused to comment on the sudden departure of A/NZ general manager, Grant Greentree.

He left abruptly after just three months in the post. His last day in the office was May 26. Prior to joining Novell, Greentree was most recently employed as CEO of software vendor, Redmap Networks. He was also a former shareholder in Web services company, Peakhour.

A spokesperson for Novell said its former head of operations for the region, Matthew Christie, had replaced Greentree.

Christie joined Novell in October 1999 in a New Zealand partner sales role. He assumed the acting general manager's role in November and was appointed head of Asia-Pacific operations in February. He has accrued 10 years' experience in the industry across application development, recruitment and solution sales.

The spokesperson said it was business as usual for the networking vendor.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
