Léo Apotheker has been fired from two CEO positions in two years. HP's board eventually caved to shareholder demands and terminated Mr. Apotheker in the wake of his wild plan to transform HP into SAP 2.0.
Meg Whitman has been appointed as HP's new CEO. As CEO at eBay she grew the firm from a $4M USD business, to an $8B USD one.
Some webOS fans are surely hoping Ms. Whitman's arrival could lead to a webOS revival.

There are indeed plenty of competent female executives out there.. these arguments are boiling down to gender alone all too quickly..
But Whitman?!?!?! She's exactly the last person I would choose to head HP. Well... besides Mad Tony..
