François was among the few people you can finally call "friends",
even when you never met them, just because they care about taking
the time to discuss things thoroughly and friendly on the Internet.

I was impressed to discover all the things he did for free software
and I suggest you have a look.

I was also impressed by all the patience he had when dealing with
people.  He has been more than supportive with me when things were
difficult, and I owe him a lot for that.

I already miss him and will do so for a long time I guess.
