The Linux Foundation announced that Markus Rex, a long-time Linux executive at SUSE Linux AG and Novell, will serve as the Foundation's new chief technology officer.

The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit group dedicated to accelerating Linuxs growth, announced on July 24 that Markus Rex, a long-time Linux executive at SUSE Linux AG and Novell, will serve as the Foundations new chief technology officer.

This position had been held by Ian Murdock, one of the founders of Debian Linux, but he left the LF (Linux Foundation) to join Sun Microsystems as its chief operating platforms officer.
Rex will be on loan to the Linux Foundation from Novell during his term as the Foundations CTO. As the LFs CTO, Rex will help drive new standardization and technical initiatives around Linux and promote Linux adoption more broadly.
