Rest In Peace, Terry A. Davis

Terry Davis, the author of TempleOS, was a brilliant programmer who suffered from severe untreated mental illness. In August of 2018 he was struck by a train while homeless. Though I never had the pleasure of his acquaintance, he was a popular figure in parts of the online programming community that I frequent, and he is sorely missed.

Terry's magnum opus, an open-source operating system that he envisioned as the Biblical Third Temple, can be found at https://templeos.org. If you're curious about what makes it so cool and you don't mind his vulgar language, I highly recommend watching some of his videos.
