Fleury On Leave; Will He Be Back?

Not big news there. The question is if he'll ever return. Water cooler talk at Red Hat is that he will not.

A spokeswoman for Red Hat confirmed that Fleury started his paternity leave last Friday and such leaves typically last a few months. Red Hat, the Raleigh, N.C.-based Linux power, bought JBoss for its app server expertise but its been clear of late that the $350 million buyout is not going as smoothly as one might have hoped. Especially, if that "one" happens to be Red Hat boss Matthew Szulik.

Fleury, a controversial figure who is now executive vice president of Red Hat's JBoss division, sparked notice in recent public comments expressing displeasure in Red Hat's level of spending in JBoss R&D. Good way to get noticed. Not a good way to build camaraderie.

Geez, what with Fleury and Oracle as Red Hat's friends, who needs enemies?

So, will Fleury stay or will he go? The clock's ticking, let's just wait and see.
