    I wonder what he will do now. I hope he does something cool.
    I wonder if he will continue with X.Org and Wayland.

    Thanks for all work Keith!

    Keith Packard is awesome!

    Keith Packard joins Hewlett-Packard.

      Gone to work on "The Machine"

      Gone to work on "The Machine" (the next-gen memristor architecture). What an opportunity.

        Hopefully him leaving won't have any negative effects on the rate of Intel hardware support on Linux.

          Thanks for all the awesome code drops and code slashing in X.org

            Thanks for working on glamor lately, radeon/amdgpu driver users really appreciate improvments there.

            Greets on a new job.

              HOPEFULLY while he's at HP he can convince them to drop that blasted BIOS whitelist that blocks us from swapping out the WiFi cards in HP notebooks.

              Maybe i should send him a request.

                  Is it just me, or has Intel been losing people and slowing down Mesa work recently? They were a huge driver in getting Mesa almost to 4.2, but the commit log on the GL3.txt file has been quiet since August last year.

                  I hope I am wrong

                    Not sure.
                    Martin Peres is an independent 'nouveau' developer, but yesterday landed in mesa a patch from him with a @linux.intel.com email address... I guess he finished its studies and have been engaged by Intel. Just guessing.
