My thoughts are with Kouri and his family!

Who takes over from Pentti? Well, maybe Pekka:

Financial and capital investor Pentti Kouri is dead. Kouri died on Thursday morning in Los Angeles after a long illness, confirming his brother Pekka Kouri.



Anyone know what kind of person Pekka Kouri is? Would he be a help or a hindrance?

@thread

Note while many us have wildly different opinions (not all with facts, let alone complete ones..not sure anyone has 'complete' facts there), this is about his passing, not a speculation thread or slamming AI or Pentti.

Imagine his family or friends doing a google search to come across this.
Feel free to start a 'speculation thread' in Free For All, but please, keep it out of here.

RIP Pentti.



@Marko

The world is small.
Just read about Pentti's death from news papers and thought that these "Amiga news" are not the ones I want to read from news papers.
(I'm currently having a vacation about 300km from Kemijärvi)

Thats cool. Since it was not billed as a condolences thread but rather a thread about his passing I think its only natural that people thought it fine to discuss the potential ramifications of that passing and what legacy he left himself in the Amiga world. Indeed, the first response from the respected programmer jahc went in such a direction with "does that mean Amiga Inc may wind down now?". I think others have felt it should be made to be a condolences thread only and thats fine if thats what moderators want of course. Understood then.

@fairlanefastback

Yeah, it wasn't exactly specified, but the fact that Seer cleaned house kinda indicated that. But yeah, please, let's just keep condolences in here, and create whatever else you'd like.

Thanks

Apparently, Pentti Kouri's apartment is up for sale.

It looks nice, I could imagine to live there for a while. But in general I don't like to live in big cities, otherwise I would buy it. Maybe.

@DrZarkov

I would buy it too, but I don't like cutting a snip at such prices, there are people more needy which can't affort more, so they can have this one. :-I
