In memoriam: Linux evangelist and editor Joe Barr

I know that Microsoft is breathing a sigh of relief with Joe's passing, but having known Joe about 15 years, I can say for certain he never spoke ill of anyone( except Microsoft)---Joe was everybody's favorite crusader, he loved everyone and everything. He made people feel good about themselves and connected with everyone with his tremendous love and sense of humor. His quote to me in emails:

"When the law is written for the benefit of global corporations rather
than the nation's citizens, it's time for revolution.

Hurry up, please, it's time."

We will miss you and try and carry on in your very big way!!!
