Today would have been his 68th birthday. Sadly he died before he could reach 60 but his spirit lives on at Scot's.

He taught linux explorers how to act civilly and ask and answer questions, no matter how basic, with kindness and patience.

Thank you Bruno.

I still miss him. He was a fountain of knowledge and a ray of sunshine here.

Bruno will always be a part of the lives of those of us who knew him and who will one day survive even SNF.

I can't believe it has been that long since. He wasn't nice for a Linux guy, he was nice period.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis
