I am so glad that others are finding the words to express what so many of us felt about Bruno. The world is a little less brighter right now. What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.Albert PineBruno you will be missed!!

What has amazed me today is the number of hits on Google when searching for "Bruno Knaapen". It's amazing the influence that Bruno had on members (and some non-members) of the Linux Community. I'm proud to have known him and I'm sure his family would be proud beyond words if they knew the full extent of Bruno's legacy.

Yep, me too Temmu. I'm sure that goes for all of us here.It was a black saturday for me (us) so to speak, and still I'm upset. You know Bruno was one heck of a man, I remember studying for my linux course way back then.Tell you what: all I needed to know was right here available at one of the known threads, and Bruno made it, single handed, at no cost. Did I know!!! And he learned me a couple of tricks for the exam too. Man, I still don't grasp this, the loss of our leader that is. Yes, I have to accept it, I know. But it's not easy, only time will tell. And no, I too never met Bruno personally, I wish I had!

A man's greatness is estimated by his influence, not over the votes and empty cheers of a changing and passing crowd, but by his abiding, inspiring influence in their bidden thoughts, upon their ways of thinking, and consequently of acting...L.E. Blaze (1926)Go with God, Bruno.

Sorry to hear of Bruno's illness and passing. He helped me long ago when I first started out in OpenSuse. I am also a cancer patient, so I understand the value of having choice and control over your own passing. God Bless Bruno and his family.

I apologize for bringing this thread back up again but wanted to say my condolences to Bruno's family and to all that knew him.I only recognize the name in passing from years past when I used to be a fair regular on these boards- I haven't been around very much in the last few years (Online Riddles took over my life). I never could get into Linux so I don't have the fortune of gaining knowledge from his wisdom.May you rest in peace Bruno.It is never easy to lose a friend, real life or online. Know that feeling all too well.

Thank you for posting this. No need to apologize for reviving the thread. It had not been archived yet, so was still an active announcement post in the board main page.

Bruno loved Bob Dylan music. As do I. He is a true legend. Helped me make my anti-virus be able to do live scans. And fixed the X server on my Mandrake. Back when they had Mandrake, and installing a font could break it. He passed on so much information on Linux while he was with us. And made every one feel welcome. No RFM. A true legend.
