Hardware, Embedded Systems "Andre Hedrick, a principal engineer and operating system architect at Cisco Systems and a Linux kernel contributor, has died. He leaves behind a wife, four young children and many friends. Andre made a significant contribution to personal computing history in a way few people fully realise." I indeed had no idea. It's subtle, but quite important indeed. Worth reading, and our thoughts and condolences with his family and friends.

I certainly wasn't aware, and I doubt I was the only one. A crying shame that none of us will have the opportunity to thank him in person, but for whatever it is worth, Thank you Andre.
