Phoronix: The Passing Of An Open-Source GPU Driver Developer
A lot of exciting information was learned at FOSDEM from Wine on Android to Freedreno Gallium3D moving along to the open-source Tegra driver, but on a more grim note, a well known open-source graphics driver developer had passed away...
Sad to hear. His work was interesting and appreciated.
I read Phoronix since a long time, but this time is too pathetic to ignore. You are making an article about a fellow developer who unfortunalty passed away, and the very first sentence is about how we learned exciting informations (sic!), pointing not, to one, two or three, but four of your own articles. Long time Phoronix readers are already aware that you'll use any means to get as much hit as possible on any article regardless or their content, wich in majority is extremely poor for someone that call himself "journalist", but doing it in such a nasty way, without at least having the decency to focus on Oliver McFadden with the very first lines, and without feeling the need to throw us a puke of references to your own blog articles. Even the title stinks, make it sounds like you're going to tell us a tale.
And you couldnt even end with a word of support for its relatives, you know, at least by courtesy.
You are a despicable person.
RIP Oliver! Thank you for all of the hard work and long hours you put in as a developer and I hope your family is doing well and you are at peace.
Just chiming in to also say RIP Oliver.
He did. See above.Even the title stinks, make it sounds like you're going to tell us a tale.
