    Unhappy Debian founder dies

    'Ian started the Debian project in August of 1993, releasing the first versions of Debian later that same year. Debian would go on to become the world's Universal Operating System, running on everything from embedded devices to the space station.'

    Very sad. But what caused him to die?
    Bugger the cancer. I'm suffering from terminal inertia.
