"A mix of tongue-in-cheek 'mock' awards followed by a respectful recognition of those who made 2000 a good year for PPC/Linux."

"Special Awards (aka the Serious Ones)
Time to shift gears and acknowledge those whose work benefitted the community at large this year. I do not think it necessary to rank people's accomplishments or work, so the following is an unranked list of people who made this year a better year for PPC/Linux.

"Our Greatest Loss
On July 11, Joel Klecker (aka Espy) passed away at 21 years of age. Noone who saw 'Espy' in #mklinux knew that behind that handle was a young man suffering from a form of muscular dystrophy. Most people only knew him as 'the Debian glibc guy' and had no idea of the hardships Joel fought. Though physically impaired, he shared his great mind with others. Joel Klecker (aka Espy) will be missed."
