Knowing it is coming doesn’t make the passing any less the sad.
Docker announced that Ian Murdock, a member of the startup’s technical staff known for founding the Debian Linux operating system, has passed away.
Wow! I have no words to express my feelings. Yesterday I read that he had tweeted a suicide threat to raise awareness about unwarranted police violence against him…today he is no more. He should be remembered as one of the few that left the world a better place than he found it. Founder of Debian and inventor of apt-get, if he had only done those two things he would be a giant amongst men.
Wow, that was unexpected.
