Ian Murdock and Police Brutality in Context | Techrights

Ian Murdock started the GNU/Linux operating system called Debian while at Purdue University in my home state of Indiana. I'm using that OS as I write this. It just works.

From the article

Best of all, Ian didn’t just build software, he built an organization, Debian. Debian’s principles have helped to unite many people from otherwise different backgrounds and carry on those principles even when Ian is no longer among us.

Thank you Ian.
