Ge's efforts with VMWare got all of the Wine Developers access for no 
cost to VMWare Fusion and his construction and maintenance of the 
Testbot system are appreciated by all the developers who use it.  
Without it, we would not be where we are today in the level and depth of 
Wine development and conformance testing.

My condolences to his family, his friends and those in the Wine 
community that met him, either in person or 'over the wire'.  His 
presence here will be missed and is one to be emulated.
