Apple Loses Mac OS Boss
Bertrand Serlet is leaving the company to “focus less on products and more on science”

Bertrand Serlet, the head of Mac OS X, is leaving the company to "focus less on products and more on science" according to Apple's press release Wednesday.

He will be replaced by his number two Craig Federighi, Apple's VP of Mac software engineering, who will report as Serlet did to Steve Jobs. He has been managing the Mac OS software engineering group for the past two years and will be responsible for Mac OS X' continued development. Serlet figures "the transition should be seamless."

Serlet, a veteran of the seminal Xerox PARC, has been with Jobs for 22 years at both NeXT, where Mac OS X first took shape, and then followed him to Apple. He succeeded Avie Tevanian as senior VP, software engineering in mid-2003 and was responsible for Tiger, Leopard and Snow Leopard.

Federighi, who also worked at both NeXT and then Apple, is a returnee, who came back to Apple in 2009 after 10 years at Ariba where he was VP of Internet services and CTO.

GigaOm chalks Serlet's departure up to Apple moving toward the "type of computing represented by its iOS mobile platform."

It says the OS X Lion developer preview "borrows many features and much of its user interface changes from the mobile platform" and it figures that, if Apple is putting OS X' desktop roots behind it, Federighi, as a relative newcomer to OS X, "benefits from not having been closely involved in that operating system's creation, leaving him with broader vision as to what it might become."

Computerworld describes Lion as the "most connected Apple OS yet" and thinks that Federighi's old job as VP of Internet services at Ariba may indicate a direction, particularly in light of that massive, presumably "Post-PC" data center Apple is building.

The guy running iOS is Scott Forstall, who also came to Apple from NeXT with Jobs, and worked on OS X under Serlet before the world went gaga over iPods, iPhones and iPads.
