what else did serlet disagree with?

Gizmodo speculates on why Bertrand Serlet, the father of Mac OS X, is leaving apple. "Now, as the company moves into its modal-based, touch-centric future, Serlet may have disagreed with this merging of iOS and Mac OS X philosophies in Lion, which will eventually lead to a complete migration to a new unified OS, more iOS than OS X."

Other unconfirmed things Serlet may have disagreed with, that may have led to his departure:

  • The brand of coffee in the Apple cafeteria.
  • The kerning of the type on his business cards.
  • The naming strategy for Apple conference rooms.
  • The colors of the new iPad cases.
