One man tells the story.
Acer runs off Gianfranco Lanci because he is not Taiwanese (and dares to want to hire talent worldwide, but for Acer foreigners only exist as buyers). Gianfranco Lanci then goes to Lenovo. Hmm whose stock holders are happier today? (though even Lenovo is starting to take it on the chin but they will outlast Acer for sure)
