A bit late arrived, but I just registered in this forum only to express condolences to his family and loved ones. I thought I must thank to him as well as all the community for the gorgeous master piece, one of the best Linux distribution I've ever installed so far.
I've never met Mark, but I'd read through many articles in the forum at the end of last year, and found myself feel so comfortable.
I'd been much awaiting for him to get back and turn off snowing.., but I got to know the very sad news.
I'm running PM 20 respin on my laptop at work and my boys' laptop at home as well.
At work, PM functions well for my every single task and never got troubled for dual screen which other distributions used to have problems
A peer of mine got installed PM 10 for his work(EDA)
For English is not my mother tongue, I couldn't express my heart fully, but I wish he rest in peace and God blessings be always with his family.
Because of him and PM community, my life here has been going far better.
I owe all you guys. Please keep your good work.
Much appreciated,
woody from South Korea

This is a big loss for Pmint's community. He always took the time to help us when we had problems and was very patient/helpful to noobs and experienced members alike. May he rest in peace.

I just read this news. I am so sad to hear. I didn't know until now that PCNetSpec was a not attributed to one person. PCNetSpec persons have been huge help to me since Peppermint 2 or 3 but Mark's help since Peppeermint 6 has been as clutch as any ever on any distro or forum.

 :( :( :(

So sorry to hear this sad news!

Mark is probably the reason why I continued to use, and now only use Linux. His friendliness and also his quick reply whenever I asked, helped me a lot.

I do not use Peppermint atm. But, I am very thankful for all the help Mark gave me! I can not express myself better in english because english is not my mother tongue.

Thanks...
