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.

Dude, you're being an ass. You don't know if he was depressed or suffered from schizophrenia or something else. You don't know if went to therapy or not or how long or how effective it was. You don't know if he was on medication or not. In short, you didn't know dick about him when you decided to take a cheap shot at him and his contributions.

Whatever. I've walked in his shoes before. And it's fair to call out the utter waste of a life, so that other people don't make the same mistake.
