"Docker today announced that Ian Murdock, a member of the startup’s technical staff and a former Sun and Salesforce employee known for founding the Debian Linux operating system, has passed away. He was 42.

A cause of death was not provided in the blog post announcing the news. Docker declined to comment. The San Francisco Police Department did not immediately have information on Murdock’s cause of death.

Murdock’s Twitter account posted several tweets (PDF) on Monday that suggested he had been involved in an incident involving police, and one tweet said that he would commit suicide that night. Some people speculated that his account had been hacked. It has since been deleted."

Probably from not getting enough exercise. Too much sitting around programming.

archive.org is non-profit, I'm fairly sure Google would sell out in a heartbeat upon request from the powers that be. There's also speculation his twitter account was hacked. I might speculate that it was hacked to delete it so a forged copy of it could be circulated.

Why was he arrested in the first place? I read something about knocking on a neighbours door.
