That's been my preference from day 1. He's a good, honest and well-spoken man. Intel is doing EXACTLY what they need to do. They are targeting Mobile fiercly and evolving the PC at the same time. Intel Radio, Select Foundy business, etc...What else can you ask from them !?
Hey att4glte, why do you care who runs the company? Anyhow, Smith is a great CFO but this ins't a bank or financial institution, Intel is a semi-conductor and software services company. A leader in this field needs to have vision and creativity when it comes R & D and it is absolutely crucial for the CEO undertand the technology, not be really good at numbers. Another good candidate may be a marketing exec, but I don't know of any who may be in the running at Intel.
