In Memory of Jonathan “avenj” Portnoy

The Gentoo project mourns the loss of Jonathan Portnoy, better known amongst us as Jon, or avenj. Jon was an active member of the International Gentoo community, almost since its founding in 1999. He was still active until his last day. His passing has struck us deeply and with disbelief. We all remember him as a vivid and enjoyable person, easy to reach out to and energetic in all his endeavors.

As per his wishes, the Gentoo Foundation has made a donation in his memory to the Perl Foundation. Please join the community in remembering Jon on our forums. Read more

Since then, we’ve only seen two other Mini-ITX boards claim a thinner, 20mm maximum thickness: Congatec’s similarly Skylake-based Conga-IC170 and Adlink’s Braswell-based AmITX-BW-I. Read more
