To those who don't know Ian Murdock has passed away at the age of 42, there hasn't been details on his sudden death, but there have been rumor that he was involved in some police brutality event... remember, all rumors, nothing conclusive at all.
But I don't want to remember Ian Murdock for the recent events but for what he did, he was the one that brought us Debian (DebIAN), back then I was just a kid didn't know even linux or windows existed... but due to the exposure of Ubuntu I learned about Debian and became to appreciate the insane efforts they have put over the years. As of today Debian is 22 years old (to know, if I'm not mistaken Linux kernel being 24 years old since its first release), that's quite a ride honestly.
Thank you, Ian.
Rest in peace.
Debian mourns the passing of Ian Murdock
