    As a long time Debian user and as a human being, I was shocked this afternoon when I received an email

    https://www.debian.org/News/2016/20160105

    announcing the passing of the project's founder.

    Way too young! Cause of death has been very speculative.

    I read so too, but didn't have the time yet to look into it carefully. I will, though.

    Greg, could you perhaps consider moving this to the "Computing and Technology" forum? I overlooked it at first, my apologies, but now I think posting this there may have been deserved and more appropriate.
