"Distro" Don Weiman (July 13, 1934 – May 17, 2021)

We regret to inform about the passing of Don Weiman. Don was more commonly known as "Distro" Don among the Linux user groups of the Chicagoland Area. Don took the extra personal effort to give away free Linux distribution media to user group members. He did this dating back to a time when many people lacked regular access to high speed Internet service and the hardware required to burn recordable compact discs. Don's dedication and generosity to the Linux community will be remembered.
