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 recall seeing his name in a few articles, but had absolutely no idea his contributions were of such significance. Truly, an under-appreciated contributor. Thank you, Mr. Andre Hendrick

Sad to hear he took his own life. My deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.
