The End Of Ian Murdock

Ian Murdock, the founder of the Debian GNU/Linux distribution of Free/Libre Open Source Software operating system and repository, died by suicide according to a medical examiner’s report.

Life is hard and often too short despite major contributions that our most brilliant people make. Debian GNU/Linux was one of the high points of my life and continues to be a big part of my day. I thank Ian Murdock for that.
