I remember Rob from when I was running Mepis 3.3.
Not sure where to put this, but hadn't seen any mention of it.
Some of you knew him better.

Rest in peace! My condolences to his family and friends.

Many people here might know about Roblimo because he wrote Point & Click Linux (which included SimpleMEPIS).

Long time-ago Mepis user here. Roblimo's book was my first intro to Linux. It was handed off to me by an old friend, Jon DuQuesne, who used to help out at the Mepis forum years ago. Point & Click Linux was my bible for the longest time, and over weeks and months Jon saddled himself with being my personal troubleshooter. Like Mepis, I've moved on to MX and antiX. But I'm still figuring things out and calling Jon when I stumble. He had no idea what his generosity was getting him into... RIP Roblimo.

I didn't know him, but prayers for his family. Lots of Linux old timers passing on.

Ah yes I tried Fedora Core 1 first. Then when I picked up a copy of Point & Click Linux and subsequently started using Mepis that is when Linux began to click for me.
Thank you, Roblimo.

Prayers for the Miller family.

His Point & Click Linux book is what first got me to try Linux.
