The curtain falls on a great friend…

It’s a very sad day today.  We lost a very nice friend yesterday, a former colleague, an amazing contributor and an ardent advocate of free software.

We will always remember him as a very close friend, skilled developer and also for his humor, enthusiasm and posting kind  messages to the distribution users.

He did an amazing work on Mandriva and then on Mageia, when he started contributing here too.

Eugeni we will miss you so much. All our thoughts go to you wherever you are and we hope you will go on developing  and kidding there. A special thought to your beloved Vanessa.

    personally, i’ve known him while he was working on mandriva. He was not only a good developer, but also an excellent person, nice and available.

    Bye Eugeni,

  12. Ouch, I’m missing words in English to explain how, even not knowing him “physically”, I have learned to appreciate his dedication to GNU/Linux, and how he seemed to be a very valuable person to me.

    My sincerest condolecences to his family and relatives.
