More of a software and cloud guy for the last decade. Which needn't be a bad thing.An electrical engineering as CEO, now that's good news!
He knows traditional Intel well enough, had plenty involvement when Intel fared well, as well as the time Intel first fell behind AMD and recovered from that. His detour with EMC and VMware lasted long enough that he also has plenty of outside perspective regarding corporate organization and culture, as well as cloud datacenter market where Intel appears to be losing the most right now.
Will be interesting to watch how that turns out for Intel, in any case should be better for tech from Intel than anything since 2009.
