In Memoriam: Ian Murdock

I just heard the news that Ian Murdock, the founder of Debian, has passed away.

He started Debian 22 years ago and in that time has made immeasurable contributions to open source community as a whole. Debian is by far one of my all time favorite Linux distributions and while it continues on without him it is sad that he will no longer be a part of it.

My thoughts and condolences go out to his friends and family. Rest in peace Ian and thank you for everything.
