Dear Linux hackers, Sorry for the intrusion on this technical list. I wanted to let Andre's fellow Linux developers know that he died this past weekend. For those that don't know him, Andre was an active developer for the ATA driver a while back. I have known Andre for about 9 years, although I haven't seen much of him in the past year. He and I attended several retreats together in 2002 and 2003. I'd like to share a story from the first time I met him. I was a FreeBSD developer at the time and had done some work in the SCSI (CAM) subsystem. I met Andre at a retreat center in the Marin woods. As we ate dinner, he mentioned that he was a software developer. "So am I", I said.
A very sad day. Andre taught me a lot about ATA, and could be considered one of the grandfathers of libata.
