He appears to have died that night, Monday, December 28. At the time of this writing, the cause of death still remains unknown.
His death is a great loss to the open-source world. He created Debian, one of the first Linux distributions and still a major distro; he also served as an open-source leader at Sun; as CTO for the Linux Foundation, and as a Docker executive. He will be missed.

There seems to be a mystery surrounding his death. Whatever the cause a sad loss. :breakfast:

Umm... you do know that this happened three years ago, right?

Still... it was/is a sad thing. :(

Yeah, I was very confused. He was posting some weird things on twitter not long before it was announced that he had died.

Have you tried vaping? I haven't touched a ciggie for months. It takes a bit to work out what style of vaper you are and which device and flavours you prefer, but slowly all the tobacco toxins will leave your body and you will feel more alive and wonder why you ever smoked.
You are welcome to my advice and encouragement if you wish to explore vaping. ;)

Try Jack Daniels, Erik. It'll clear your mind right up... just like mine is at the moment. ;)
