This may be the most amicable of the recent departures, Intel's leader for the past eight years will be stepping down in Spring.  The last eight years have seen a lot of successes at Intel as well as a few projects which did not pan out as hoped.  He is the man who oversaw Intel's chip design change from an inefficient architecture which lagged behind AMD's to their current undisputed role in the market today.  When he first started at Intel 40 years ago, the company had only been in existence for 5 years, so he has had a large influence on Intel's growth and it will be interesting to see the changes that will occur at Intel under a new leader.  Check out who The Tech Report thinks might be the next Intel CEO here.

Before you go, Otellini, please make sure All the laptop OEMs that your company allowed to customize your Intel HD graphics drivers, which can not be updated through Intel's HD graphics driver website, update their Intel HD graphics drivers! It's the One Big Mistake Intel Made! I have one Toshiba 3 years old, never an HD graphics driver update; One Samsung (non genaric HD graphics drivers) about 6 mo old, no updates and plenty of artifacts if you try to enlarge images in any viewers, especially images that have every other pixel column erased, must be AA problems! My ASUS laptop has genaric Intel HD graphics drivers, and it is the only laptop that recieves regular HD graphics driver updates! The Toshiba has never worked properly with Blender, and Wings3D dew to lack of driver UPDATES!
And any laptops that come with Intel genaric drivers, please have the OEMs indicate that the drivers are Intel Genaric drivers, by placing a sticker on the laptop stating Genaric Intel HD graphics drivers installed, as it is impossable to get administrative privileges at the retail outlets, to install the INTEL website components and check this before a purcahse!
