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.

... so he committed suicide and left behind a wife and 4 young children? Seems pretty selfish, if you ask me. Maybe he should have spent a little less time hacking Linux and more in therapy.
