Thank you Robert for all you've done. Not only for myself but for the entire Linux community.
DSL was my first real try at Linux and you made it easy and enjoyable to use.

You've done a great job.


======== Note =========
The DSL Forum Search default is 'OR'
If you search for "cat dog" you will get all "cat" posts and all "dog" posts.
If you search for "cat AND dog" you will only find results that contain BOTH "cat" and "dog"
Add '*' for wildcards, " cat* and dog* "

I echo the sentiments already expressed.  Thanks for everything Robert.  

It's a pity things have come to this, and I for one would like to have seen another outcome, but I respect your decision.  It may well be for the better of all concerned, we shall see.  Perhaps it is just another stage in your professional development and that of dsl.

dsl has played a critical part in my interest in Linux.  It's fair to say that, without dsl, I probably would not have become interested in linux at all. I dare say the same goes for many hundreds of other users.  And dsl would not have been dsl without many of the facets that you developed, from the elaboration of a simple idea of  CBagger1's into a n extension system, to uci's, to uncs, to backup/restore,.... well, it goes on and on.

a tragedy indeed.  

Robert, I guess you are looking to the future with the knowledge that you have helped to create something wonderful which will still be around and in use for many years to come.  

I can only hope you keep up the good work and I will be checking your site regularly.
