"Open-source advocate Bruce Perens has left Hewlett-Packard, after spending two years at the computer giant.
Perens announced his departure on his Web site. He did not state on the site why he was leaving or what his future plans are. Neither Perens nor HP officials could immediately be reached for comment. HP hired Perens in December 2000, saying he would help give the company a deeper understanding of the Linux operating system and other open-source software."
