Debian Linux founder found dead

Post by ngensys2000 on 3rd January 2016, 7:46 am

Debian Linux founder Ian Murdock dead at 42
Tributes pour in for open-source pioneer who had threatened to kill himself on Twitter.

Murdock is best known for launching the open-source distro in 1993. Just last month, he joined the technology startup Docker in San Francisco.


On Monday afternoon, he posted a string of distressing and erratic tweets, revealing he had been arrested by police near his home in the city, and that he was accused of assaulting an officer. Murdock was also threatening to kill himself. After people reached out to him, he appeared to calm down, vowing instead to clear his name. Murdock died that evening. His Twitter account has since been disabled.

He got some mental problems I think. At first I also thought that his twitter got hacked or just drunk/high.
