Creator of the open source Debian operating system Ian Murdock has died at age 42.

Debian was one of the first Linux distros to be forged and has grown to become a widely lauded and respected operating system, the software has been used on machines running on the International Space Station -- it offers over 43000 packages of precompiled bundled software and was named as a portmanteau after Murdock's old girlfriend Debra Lynn and his own name.

Murdock died last Monday night according to a blog posted on the Docker website, his employer at the time of his death.
